Note: When an event that has been assigned to a Slack Channel is duplicated, the new event will have the same Slack Channel assigned to it automatically.
Viewing Goldcast Event Notifications in Slack
Note: If the Slack channel you have selected is not receiving notifications, a Workspace Owner may need to approve the app installation. Please refer to this article for instructions on how to submit an app approval request.
After you have successfully installed the Slack + Salesforce Integration and connected it to a channel, you will begin receiving notifications every time a user has registered for or attended your event. A Notified message will appear at the bottom of each notification to indicate who the Salesforce Lead Owner of a registrant is.
Registration notifications will also be sent directly to the Lead Owner.
Additionally, they will also receive notifications about event attendance with information about each attendee along with a unique magic link to enter the event. If the Lead Owner has not registered for the event, a registration link will be provided instead.
