How to Get Started with Slack on Stargate

To connect a trigger to Slack, you first need to set up a trigger. In this case we are going to use Gmail as the trigger. That means as soon as an email lands in Gmail, Stargate breaks it down and send the information to Slack.


Step 1: You need to click on the New action button to create a Slack action.

Then enter the message.  The fields from Gmail are shown on the left. You can drag and drop any of the Gmail fields on the left and drop it in the message.

These dropped fields will be replaced with the real values at runtime.
