Slack - Direct Message via

When Status changes to something I want to direct message someone on slack. It does not appear in the slack integration. I also tried using the Gmail Integration. First I get the slack email address that goes to my desired direct message recipient. However, in order to do this, I’d have to make this email address one of my team members’ email addresses inside of their profile. I’m looking for a way to choose manually which address an email is sent to…other than being connected with a user in Monday.

Hey @weblifestores! Could you add an email column with this address and use this recipe? Currently, our Slack integration does not integrate with direct messages.

Would love to see if that works for you! Cheers!

I’d need the email column to populate with a set email address upon creation of every new task. Which I do not see an automation for. Unless i’m missing something.
