Slack channel notifications for new Leads from Facebook

Let's look at creating a "Facebook-Slack" bundle. After it starts, when filling out the lead form, the new lead will be sent to Slack, to the selected channel. You can also set up a similar link with other services, the configuration will be similar.

Before setting up a bundle, connect the services to Albato:

Step 1. The choice of systems. Click on "New bundle":
Select the service you need in the "Fetch data from" field, such as Facebook. In the "Send data to" field, enter the Slack service. Click on "Next":
Step 2. Choosing events. For Facebook, select the "Ad Lead" event, for Slack, select the "Message to channel" action and click "Next":
Step 3. Choosing the connection. Select your Facebook connection, the page where the lead form is located, the lead form itself, and click "Save". If Albato doesn't see the page and / or lead form you need, click on "Refresh data":
Choose your Slack connection:
Step 4. Setting up the transfer field. In the "Text" field, form the text that you want to send to the channel when the event is triggered. You can write the text by hand and add dynamic parameters from Facebook by selecting the appropriate parameter from the drop-down list on the right:
In the "Need to escape text" field, you can choose the type of text formatting you need, if you need to mark users in the text, for example, select the value "No":
You can read more about the Slack syntax in their documentation

After setting up all the fields, click "Next".

One such link works for one specific form, you will need to create each link for each Facebook lead form, or use the trigger on webhooks, in this case, you can create one link per page. You can read more about setting up this trigger here.

Done! The bundle is created, don't forget to run it:
