Integrating Slack Using API Call Notifications

Last edit: 


This guide will help you create a Slack integration for platformOS using API Call Notifications.


To follow this tutorial, you should be familiar with creating API call notifications. You also have to have access to a Slack workspace, have enabled webhooks, and created an incoming webhook. You will need the webhook URL for creating the API call notification.


Integrating Slack using API call notifications is a two-step process:

  1. Create API call notification
  2. Add API call notification to form

Step 1: Create API call notification

Your webhook URL looks similar to this:
Create an API call notification using your own webhook URL (replace placeholder):

name: { name of your file here }
delay: 0
enabled: true
format: http
headers: '{ "Content-Type": "application/json" }'
request_type: POST
to: { your webhook URL, e.g. }
trigger_condition: true
	"text": "New Contact on!"

Step 2: Add API call notification to form

Add the following to the front matter on your form:

- { slack_sales_request }

The front matter of the form we used in this example:

name: enquirer_signup
resource: User
  - slack_sales_request
