Automations and Templates

You can set up automations between Slack and to complete common team actions and save loads of time. Channel notifications can also be customized and filtered to ensure your team is only bothered by the events that demand their attention. 

Why Integrate Plus Automations?

Native automations in don't have any Slack-related triggers, and while they do support the ability to send messages to Slack, only Integrate Plus allows users to edit their items directly from Slack notifications.

Integrate Plus offers two actions and one trigger:

  • Send message to Slack channel
  • Send message to Slack user
  • When emoji is used in channel (trigger)

While you can customize the notification text in, only Integate Plus notifications allow you to edit the item that triggered the notification directly in Slack.

All notifications from our app support the following actions:

  • Assigning the item

  • Adding an update to the item

  • Moving the item to a different group

  • Updating the status of the item

Board complexities  👀

Does your item have multiple people columns or status types? No worries! Integrate Plus lets you select which column you want to update.

Available Templates

You can find the following Integrate Plus templates in the app section of the templates library:

  • When an emoji is used in a Slack channel create an item in board

  • When column changes send message to Slack channel

  • When column changes send message to Slack user

Custom Automations

Actions and triggers offered by Integrate Plus behave as follows:


You can use "Send message to Slack user" and "Send message to Slack channel" in custom automations. This gives you complete control over which events trigger notifications, what information they contain, and how they are delivered.


You should configure emoji reactions using the provided template, which lets you map the following variables to fields in your item:

  • The content of the Slack message the emoji reacted to
  • The Slack channel
  • The emoji used

The most important information to include with an emoji reaction is the content of the Slack message. While you can use the emoji-reaction trigger in a custom automation, it cannot be linked to a item or a specific Slack message.
