I just connected a new app to my Slack workspace and it posts messages regularly as an “App” in the “App” category underneath all my channels (and DM’s) in the lower left sidebar in Slack.
This sort of “App” channel does have it’s own Channel ID that starts with “D” (where public channels usually start with “C”) so I am thinking that it must be a private channel. However, the App name does not show up when Zapier attempts to find the channel (in the Set up Trigger step). I also tried inputing the channel ID directly through the “Custom” tab in the Set up Trigger step, but still no luck there.
Has anyone successfully set up a trigger from a message from a Slack App before? If so, how did you get Zapier to recognize the channel?
