New Message in Private Channel

Trigger a Flow whenever a new message is added to a private Slack channel.

Note: Pairing this event with a Send Message to Channel action may create a loop. Notifying the channel when a new message is added will cause the Flow to respond to its own messages.

Unless otherwise indicated, field types are text.


  • Your Channels(drop-down): A list of private channels that you can monitor.


  • Message

    • Text: The text of the message.

    • Timestamp: The timestamp when the message was added.

  • Author

    • Full Name: The user's full name.

    • Username: The user's Slack username (without @ symbol).

    • User ID: The user's unique Slack ID.
