Hello, I’m trying to find the best way to have reports with attachments (photos) automatically post to our team Slack channel upon submission. Basically, I have set up a form that my team can complete that allows for an attachment (photo) upload. After submission I have the automations set up to post to Slack. Everything works except the image will normally have “file not found.” I have the URL set to forward to Slack.
Thanks in advance!
As far as I know, Airtable doesn’t natively support Slack’s “Upload File” API request, which is what you need to send a message to Slack with a file attached to it.
Technically speaking, when you use Slack’s API, you are actually “uploading the file” first, and then you are optionally attaching an initial message that goes along with that file upload.
If you know how to write code, you can accomplish this feat by either:
Below is a screenshot example of how easily you could setup this scenario in Make.
