Forward specific Slack chat to monday as an item/subitem update

While I like the feature to create a new item or add a new item update via Slack, what would be even better is the ability to forward an actual individual chat message (including the author, date/time stamp, and message) to a monday board as an item or subitem update.

This would create so much efficiency when receiving notes or suggestions for ongoing projects so that you don’t lose the information.

A big consideration for this is that - for those of us who do not have upgraded Slack accounts, our chats disappear after a certain timeframe, so this should be a one-way feed that is then stored in monday vs. a live integration.

Hey Andrea!

I wanted to check if you had explored our native integration with Slack? You’re able to create items/updates directly from slack channels/conversations.

I understand you’re also interested in syncing + storing an entire slack conversation to the platform, which is an interesting request that I can definitely take with our team internally :raised_hands:

Hi Bianca – I have used the native integration. It’s great for simple items/tasks that don’t require a lot of context. But when you need notes or context, you basically have to duplicate the person’s chat manually or type your own notes, which can be time-consuming.

I also wanted to note that my request was specific to a single chat vs. an entire conversation, although having the option for both might be nice.


Hi @andrea.briley,

We’ve recently launched an app called Slack IntegratePlus for that does exactly this. If you use our message actions (Create an Item or Add and Update with) then you can select the option to add message information. It automatically adds the user that made the comment, the channel name, timestamp and a clickable link to the Slack message. Our app also supports sending messages with Slack messaging format (Bold/Bullet list/links/etc) and allows you to set additional column information during the creation process. I’ve attached some screen shots of the configuration process and how the message appears in the update.
