New Pinned Message

Trigger a Flow whenever a new pinned message is added to a 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.

To configure this card, you must complete the following steps:

  1. Choose a Slack account that has already been configured, or select "New Account" to connect a new account.

  2. Choose the Slack channel that you'd like to monitor from the drop-down list. This list only includes the channels you are currently a member of.

  3. If you are unable to connect to your account, you will receive an "INVALID CONFIG" message and you will not be able to finish configuring the card. Click the Accounts tab to go back and select a different account.

Unless otherwise indicated, field types are text.

Options

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

Output

  • 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).
