How Slack works
Slack is a powerful workplace collaboration tool that can also send and receive data or event notifications. For example, you can configure your web applications to send notifications to a Slack channel whenever a certain conversion event occurs. However, you’ll need to write custom webhook code directly into your application for each event you wish to record and send in this way. The exact implementation will depend on your application language and architecture.
Get more out of Slack with Segment
You can use your existing Segment installation without modification to start sending notifications to Slack channels. Enabling Slack in Segment, you’ll be able to immediately send event data from mobile, web and server sources to any specified channel in Slack. You can use convenient
handlebars.js templating to control and populate the messages with data from any
track() event. Simply enter into your Segment settings the name of your Slack instance’s
Incoming Webhook URL, and Segment will forward any data it collects to that endpoint for you, automatically.
