Create your playbook and set the ClickUp trigger as "Task created"

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

To setup this playbook, click "Add trigger" and then select "Task created" under ClickUp. Then, select the necessary details. This will allow your playbook to automatically detect the newly created task in ClickUp and initiate necessary actions.

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

Add the "Create channel" in Slack automation

Integrate the Slack automation into your playbook to ensure the prompt creation of a new channel in Slack when a new task has been created in ClickUp.

Click the "Add step" button, then locate the "Create 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 creation of a new Slack channel. Once turned on, it will respond to each newly created task in ClickUp by creating a new channel in 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.
