Writing blog posts is hard enough, leave the proofreading to Perfect Tense. With this automation, Perfect Tense will scan your WordPress blog post drafts for errors and if it finds any, Zapier will send you Slack notifications with the error count, post title, and a link to view the corrections in the Perfect Tense editor. All you have to do is save your post as a draft to trigger the process!

How this WordPress-Perfect Tense-Slack integration works

  1. A new article is saved as a draft on your WordPress
  2. Perfect Tense saves the corrected text in your file manager and finds the number of errors
  3. Zapier sends you a Slack notification with the number of errors, article title, and a link to view the corrections in the Perfect Tense editor
