In this article we'll give you a walkthrough of creating a Slack destination.

To set up this destination, go to your Forms page and locate your form. Then, click the settings icon to view the menu and select Destinations. On the following page, click New Destination.

Note: By default, two destinations are added every form created.

Note: Depending on the subscription package you have, your available destination options will vary.

A new page will load, and on it you will see different destinations to send your data. Select Slack as your destination and the format in which you'd like to deliver the information. In this example, PDF has been selected.

Supported Formats

Plain Text

Adobe .pdf

Word .docx

Excel .xlsx

XML

JSON

Images

In Step 3, you can specify that images, signatures and sketches are sent to a different service other than Device Magic. See this help article for more information.

Step 4 provides the option to add a Description to your destination. You can also set your destination to be active or inactive here. When the Active box is unchecked, the destination will not deliver submitted data.

Below this section, additional formatting options will appear depending on the format of your destination. If you'd like more information on PDF options, please have a look here.

Next, click the Start authorizing with Slack link and a new window will appear with the sign-in options.

After inputting your Slack account details and successfully signing-in, you can select the channel in which you'd like to send your data.

Click Authorize and the window will automatically close. Now your Slack account and selected channel will be added to step 6 on your destinations page.

In Step 7, you have the option to create Destination Rules for when you want the Destination to be active. To learn more Destination Rules, visit this article.

Lastly, click the Create Destination button at the bottom of the page.
