Slack has revolutionized the landscape of team communication. At Optimization, we have adopted it as our primary tool for communication since it allows us to work well asynchronously and keeps our remote team connected and engaged. As a company committed to optimizing our tools to their fullest potential 😉, we carefully organized our Slack workspace with various channels and provided our team with clear communication processes to ensure our team is as productive as possible. Another one of the key reasons we've chosen Slack is its integration with other tools, either through custom automations or built-in integrations.
Recently, Notion has upgraded its integration to enable improved synchronization with Slack for its databases. This enhancement ensures that we receive timely notifications when a property within the database is updated or a new page is created, further streamlining our communication and collaboration.
Furthermore, Notion has taken it a step further by offering the ability to filter these notifications using database properties. This additional feature presents a diverse range of possibilities, allowing you to customize the integration to suit your specific needs.
Here are a few use cases where you can utilize this new update:
Tasks Database: Configure a Slack notification to be sent whenever a task assigned to you and marked for review gets updated — this ensures you stay informed about any changes or progress made on the tasks you're responsible for.
Project Database: Set up Slack notifications to be triggered whenever a project transitions to a specific stage — this allows you to stay informed about the progress of your projects and facilitates timely updates for the entire team.
Thread Database: Establish a Slack notification to be automatically sent whenever you create a company-wide announcement and wish to share it across a designated company-wide channel — this ensures efficient communication of important updates to all team members.
This recent update is an exciting development that significantly improves the workflow experience between Slack and Notion. However, there is still room for improvement, and we eagerly anticipate further updates that will allow us to take full advantage of this.
