I’m trying to use the New User in Slack trigger to alert me when new users from other teams join a shared channel. I’ve set up the Zap, but I’m unclear if this will actually trigger when a new user joins a Shared Channel instead of a regular channel. Can anyone clarify this for me?

It’s been a while but we wanted to check back on this issue. Do you have a team or trusted users in your Slack instance that could react to a user when they join a shared channel? From there, you could set up a Zap that triggers when a New Reaction Added to a public channel by only specific admins/moderators (Filter by Zapier works great for this) within your team then for the Zap to fire off as a Send Direct Message action to whomever you wish from there. Yes, I realize that it’s a little more manual and it’s possible to miss if it’s dependent on human-interaction but it could be disguised as a wonderful community engagement method to have users feel welcomed by seeing an emoji reaction to their message when they join.
Please let us know how we may help!
