Overview of Slack

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. When you authorize the Pipedream app's access to your workspace, you can use Pipedream workflows to perform common Slack actions, or write your own code against the Slack API.

The Pipedream Slack app is not a typical app. You don't interact with it directly as a bot, and it doesn't add custom functionality to your workspace out of the box. It just makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

Here are some examples of automations you can build with Pipedream on Slack:

  • Automate posting updates to your team channel
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • Build a custom dashboard to track your team's progress
  • Create a bot to handle scheduling and meeting requests
  • And much more!

Should I use the Slack or Slack Bot app on Pipedream?

The Slack app is the easiest and most convienent option to get started. It installs the official Pipedream bot into your Slack workspace with just a few clicks.

However, if you'd like to use your own bot registered with the Slack API, you can use the Slack Bot app instead.

The Slack Bot requires a bot token to allow your Pipedream workflows to authenticate as your bot. The extra set up steps allow you to list your custom bot on the Slack Marketplace, or install the bot on other workspaces as your bot's name instead of as Pipedream.

Getting Started

You can install the Pipedream Slack app in the Accounts section of your account, or directly in a workflow

Accounts

  1. Visit https://pipedream.com/accounts.
  2. Click on the Click Here To Connect An App button in the top-right.
  3. Search for "Slack" among the list of apps, and select it.
  4. This will open a new window asking you to allow Pipedream access to your Slack workspace. Choose the right workspace where you'd like to install the app, then click Allow.
  5. That's it! You can now use this Slack account in any actions, or link it to any code step.

Within a workflow

  1. Create a new workflow.
  2. Select your trigger (HTTP, Cron, etc.).
  3. Click on the + button below the trigger step, and search for "Slack".
  4. Select the Send a Message action.
  5. Click the Connect Account button near the top of the step. This will prompt you to select any existing Slack accounts you've previously authenticated with Pipedream, or you can select a New account. Clicking New opens a new window asking you to allow Pipedream access to your Slack workspace. Choose the right workspace where you'd like to install the app, then click Allow.
  6. That's it! You can now connect to the Slack API using any of the Slack actions within a Pipedream workflow.

Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
Airtable Webhooks with Slack + Pipedream
We love Airtable here at Pipedream. But Airtable lacks one killer feature — webhooks. We took advantage of Airtable’s Slack notifications and built a way to send webhooks to an HTTP endpoint every time a record is created or updated in a base. It takes 10 minutes to setup and it’s free.
