Send a Slack Direct Message for new Channel Messages

Want to keep up with what's posted in a Slack channel, perhaps to see when specific topics are mentioned in channels you don't usually watch as closely? This Zapier integration can help. Whenever a new message is posted to that channel, this Zap can copy the message and send it to you in a direct message. It's the perfect way to keep up with everything in Slack—or to keep up with multiple Slack accounts from one account.

Note: This Zap will run every time a new message is posted in the Slack channel you select. Once you've created the Zap, you can open it in your Zapier Dashboard and add a filter to watch for messages about specific topics.

How It Works

  1. A new message is posted to a Slack channel
  2. Zapier copies that message and sends it to you or another Slack member via Direct Message
