Connect your form to Slack
Get a Slack notification whenever your form is submitted, with each question automatically formatted or with a custom message of your choosing.
Slack is a communication platform designed for teams to collaborate and work together more effectively. It offers messaging, file sharing, and other features to help teams stay connected and productive.
Open your form in Fillout and head to the Integrations tab, then click
Choose a unique name for your Slack integration and click

You will be redirected to the Slack login page. Sign in to your workspace. Then, click
