Set the Notion trigger as “New page added”

A playbook always starts with a trigger, which is responsible for detecting changes in your connected applications and responding accordingly.

Add the Notion trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time a page is added. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "New page added" from the dropdown menu under Notion.

If you still need to connect your Notion account to Relay.app yet, a prompt will guide you through the process.

Add the “Create channel” step in Slack

Integrate Slack automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt creation of a new Slack channel every time a page is added in Notion.

Click the "Add step" button, locate the “Create channel” automation for Slack, and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Slack account still needs to be 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 playbook

Activating your playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically create a new Slack channel every time a page is added in Notion without requiring manual intervention.

To activate your playbook, click the toggle button at the header. Before activating, we recommend performing a test run of your playbook to ensure all the steps work seamlessly together.
