Create your Relay.app playbook

To start coordinating your workflow between Google Sheets and Slack, you must set up specific steps.

Firstly, sign up for Relay.app and visit your dashboard. Click the "New playbook" button to start creating a playbook.

Give your playbook a unique name like "Send Slack direct messages whenever a new row is added to Google Sheets," and choose a relevant emoji 📨 to help you quickly identify it.

Set the Google Sheets trigger as “Row added”

Add the Google Sheets trigger to initiate your playbook's actions whenever a new row is added.

To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook. Select the "Row added" trigger option from the dropdown menu under Google Sheets. It will enable your playbook to automatically identify newly added rows and trigger necessary actions.

If you still need to connect your Google Sheets 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 new rows added in Google Sheets.

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

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

Activating your playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically send Slack direct messages whenever a new row is added to your Google Sheets without requiring manual intervention.
