Slack connector

Slack is a communications platform that enables organizations to foster collaboration and create groups for specific topics to be discussed. You can create, join, leave, search, archive, and invite users to channels, send messages, and make custom API calls to the Slack API.

Authorize your Slack account

When you add a Slack card to a Flow for the first time, you’ll be prompted to set up a connection for that channel. Setting up a connection will allow you to connect the Flow to your Slack account, save the data, and reuse that connection the next time you build a Flow with this card. See Authorization.
