inSided trigger event for Keywords or Tag

  • 14 November 2022

I’m looking for a way to send an alert in Slack when there is a post or reply in the community that has a keyword and/or a specific tag added to it. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like either of those are trigger events in Zapier. 


Doe anyone have any workarounds, or is there a way to add these as triggers?

Hey there, @tootsies19! Great question and we’re happy to help!
Hmm, I wonder if a Filter by Zapier step would work for you? You could filter by that specific keyword or tag and then proceed with your Slack step as needed. So it might look like having two different zaps - one for topic and one for replies:

  • “New Topic” - Insided Trigger AND a “New Reply” Insided Trigger
  • Filter by keyword and/or tag
  • Send Channel Message - Slack Action (swap this for whichever Slack action you need)

If it helps get you started here’s a Filter Hub with a ton of resources and common workflows.

Do you think that could work? Let us know! 

As a side note it’s super neat to see another Insided community user here! 🤗✨


Thanks a bunch @christina.d ! That’s exactly what I was looking for. 

And oh yes, haha inSpired all the way. 😜
