Send Message to Channel

Send a message to a Slack channel. You must be a member of the channel. You can send the message as a bot or from your own ID.

When sending messages as a bot, you will trigger any Flows that look for a New Message in Channel event. If you are subscribed to channel notifications, you will receive a notification when you send messages as a bot. Sending from your own ID will not trigger Flows or notifications.

Unless otherwise indicated, field types are text.

Options

  • Your Channels (drop-down): The available channels.

  • Send as Bot? (drop-down): Choose yes to send the message from a bot or no to send it from your own ID.

  • Unfurl URLs?(true/false): True, if Slack should scan links found in messages and create attachments based on the link's contents; false, otherwise.

Input

  • Message Text: The message text (may include emojis:, #channels, @users, and /commands).

  • Slackbot Name: The name of the sender from the slackbot channel (if Send as Bot? option is yes).

Output

  • Timestamp: The timestamp when the message was sent.
