Set the Typeform trigger as “New response”

Add the Typeform trigger to initiate your playbook's actions before submitting a new response.

To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook. Select the "New response" trigger option from the dropdown menu under Typeform. It will enable your playbook to identify new responses and trigger necessary actions automatically.

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

Add the “Send DM” step in Slack

Integrate Slack automation into your playbook to ensure that you receive timely updates on the new response submitted.

Select "Add Step" and then find the "Send DM" automation for Slack. Enter all the required details, including the receiver's name, and the message body containing detailed information.

If you still need to connect your Slack account to Relay.app, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Ensure that you allow the necessary permissions for Relay.app to send direct messages through your Slack account.

Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically send a direct message in Slack for every new response received in Typeform without requiring manual intervention.
