Hey @josephsultan ,


You can use below action from Storage by Zapier , and Filter by Zapier



Your Zap will be like below 


Trigger - New message in Slack Channel

Action 1 - Increment value by 1

Action 2 - Filter by Zapier. If action 1 value equals 3

Action 3 - Send message to another Slack channel


@jayeshkumarbhatia Thank you so much! it worked!

May I also ask you if the increment value filters posts within a timeframe of 24 hours? or more? 

As I need to make sure that it filter posts within every 24 hours, and not to carry forward the number of posts from before. 
Hope it makes sense!
