Start conversation when new users joins slack team


(Tim Delhaes) #1

I am building a bot to welcome new users on Slack.
The best way to do this was so far to user the “Slack: new user trigger”.
Then I catch a webhook in flowxo from Zapier.

Now I am stuck? How do I get the bot to send a “welcome” message to the users?
Using the response path? How?

Or is there a better way?

Hi @Tim_Delhaes

Response paths are unique to a Flow XO bot and the user and is generated when a flow is triggered for the first time so a webhook from Zapier isn’t going to contain that information.

There isn’t currently a trigger built into Flow XO that detects a new Slack User and instead they would need to send a message for a flow to be triggered. Unfortunately this means that what you’re trying to setup isn’t possible using Flow XO at the moment.

Anything on the roadmap for this?

It’s not on the immediate development roadmap but we’ll certainly keep it in mind for future updates :slight_smile:
