How can you send airtable updates to someone’s personal slack, pinging them instantly when they’ve been added as a collaborator. So far, all updates will be sent to a channel but not individual slacks.

Welcome to the community, @Jenny_Simon!

Are you referring to sending someone a direct message in Slack? As far as I know, Airtable doesn’t support sending direct messages in Slack. I believe that Airtable only supports sending messages to Slack channels.

I’m sure that a custom JavaScript can be written for these purposes. However, for a no-code approach to this, you can easily send direct messages from Airtable to Slack by using Integromat’s Slack automations:
