Sending Dropbox Paper notifications to slack

Helpful | Level 5

Hi, 

We're looking to make more use of Paper for project and task management but a key thing for us is the ability to send notifications (of task due dates, etc..) to a slack channel as opposed to email. 

Is this possible?  If so, how? 

Thanks.

Hi Dougl

I don't really use Slack myself, but I know there is some form of integration with Paper.

I assume you've read this?

Hey @dougl, welcome to our community!
 
I don’t believe that this is currently possible, but let me ask around, and I’ll get back to you winking face

Thanks Luke, I have. It's still quite a basis integration.

Yes it is for now.

What about something like this IFTTT as a workaround for now? Or something similar that targets the emails from paper? If it works let us know.

Hey @dougl, I'm just following-up here, as we're currently looking into that internally & we'll make sure to keep this thread updated.  

Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead! slightly smiling face

We really need this! Notification that could point from @mentions in Dropbox Paper to individual Slack users or a Slack Channel is very much needed! Thanks
