Edit message template

Click [Operation] > [Message template].

Add the following at the beginning of the "Body".

{*Slack notification*}
{capture name=slack_text_body}
You received an inquiry to "{$inquiryHeader.inquiry_name}".
Check the detail from the link below:
{slack_post_message channel='YOUR-CHANNEL-NAME' text=$smarty.capture.slack_text_body}

{*Email notification*}

Replace YOUR-CHANNEL-NAME with your own channel name in which you want to receive the notification.

Click [Update] to save the settings.


  • If you want to send the notification only to Slack, set "Stop sending email" to "1" from the [custom settings].

  • If you want to set the mention on Slack to @channel, write <!channel>.
  • If you want to mention a person on Slack, write <@SLACK-MEMBER-ID>(Replace SLACK-MEMBER-ID with the actual ID of the member who you want to mention).

Form basic settings

Click [Campaign] > [Form].

Click the title of the form.
Image from Gyazo

On the basic settings tab, check [Notify] and enter the email address and title.

Operation check

Finally, we check the operation.
When you submit a response to a form with admin notifications enabled, you'll get a Slack channel notification in addition to the email notification.

With the above steps, you can now send notification of the received inquiries to Slack.

You can also use the same method to send other notifications such as approval workflows to Slack, so please give it a try.
