Create your playbook and set the Mailchimp trigger as "New subscriber"

After creating your playbook, you can proceed to add your trigger. The trigger detects changes in your connected apps and responds to your playbook.

To setup this playbook, click "Add trigger" and then select "New subscriber" under Mailchimp. Then, select the audience you're targeting. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect the new subscriber in Mailchimp and initiate necessary actions.

If this is your first time using a Mailchimp integration in Relay.app, a prompt will guide you through the connection process.

Add the "Add users to channel" in Slack automation

Integrate the Slack automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt addition of a new user to the specific channel in Slack for a new subscriber in Mailchimp.

Click the "Add step" button, then locate the "Add users to channel" automation for Slack and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Slack account isn't already connected to Relay.app, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay.app to sync with your Slack account.

Activate your Relay.app playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step to automate the addition of a new user to the specific channel on Slack. Once turned on, it will respond to each new subscriber in Mailchimp by adding a new user to the specific channel on Slack without manual intervention.

To enable your playbook, click the toggle button located in the header. It is advisable to perform a test run of your playbook beforehand to ensure all steps work seamlessly together and reminders are being sent correctly.
