I am using Slack and Typeform. I would like to zap the Typeform link when someone mentions a certain word(s) or uses a specific emojiin Slack, however Typeform can only be used as a trigger. Is there a way to use Slack as the Trigger for a company account(not my personal account) and trigger a url to the user/channel that created the mention or emoji?

Hi @LHayden - Thanks for writing to us today!

Yes, you may use Slack as a trigger. I believe the trigger you’re looking for is New Reaction Added which triggers when a reaction (aka reactji) is added to a message in a public #channel. Then from there, your next step could be to send a direct message to a public channel. Then a search step would be good to add. I would Find User by Username or Find User by Name (in Slack), then Send Direct Message with the URL you want them to fill out in Typeform. 

Let us know if this worked for you!
