Once you've chosen one of the six recipes and authorized monday.com to integrate with Slack, you will arrive to the integration window. This is where you will be able to set up your automation. You can customize the message that will be sent to the slack channel as seen below!
- Use case 1: When a pulse is created, notify in channel:
This can be helpful to stay on top of new tasks and pulses being added to a group so you can be instantly notified of new tasks that are added to a board and make sure the entire team is aligned! First begin by choosing the message you want to appear in Slack. You can customize and include the user name who created it, the board name, and the pulse name as well as your custom message about it!
Once done, choose any channel from your Slack account you want to be notified of this message!
- Use case 2: When a status changes to something, notify in channel
This is extremely helpful to stay up to date on the progress of the status of your projects and tasks. You can notify those who need to know when soemthing is stuck or done without having to check-in or schedule meetings. Sit back and know that once it has been updated, your entire team will be notified!
First choose the status that you want to keep track of:
Then choose the status that you want to be notified of changing, or you can choose anything to stay on top of each change.
Once you have created the custom message, and chosen your desired channel, you are all set!

This really helps teams work efficiently and closely together on projects, especially with many task owners and dependent tasks.
