Slack

Slack is a channel-based messaging platform. With Slack, people can work together more effectively, connect all their software tools and services, and find the information they need to do their best work — all within a secure, enterprise-grade environment.

Integrate the Slack API with the Delay API

Setup the Slack API trigger to run a workflow which integrates with the Delay API. Pipedream's integration platform allows you to integrate Slack and Delay remarkably fast. Free for developers.

Overview of Slack

The Pipedream Slack app enables you to build event-driven workflows that interact with the Slack API. Once 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 makes it easier to automate anything you'd typically use the Slack API for, using Pipedream workflows.

  • Automate posting updates to your team channels
  • Create a bot to answer common questions
  • Integrate with your existing tools and services
  • And much more!

Overview of Delay

The Delay API in Pipedream is a built-in function that allows you to pause a workflow for a specified amount of time. This can be incredibly useful when you need to stagger API calls to avoid rate limits, wait for an external process to complete, or simply introduce a delay between actions in a sequence. With precision up to milliseconds, the Delay API provides a simple yet powerful tool for managing timing in automation workflows.

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.
