Salesforce Opportunity to Slack Notifications
This is an 'Embedded Solution' template which means that it contains 'Config Slots' that allow End Users to configure it for their own use

When a new Salesforce opportunity is created, manually tracking and updating the people who need to know is a time-consuming process.
Relying on person-to-person interactions leaves space for miscommunication or errors.
This template automates the process and eliminates any errors that might occur, by:
Checking for new opportunities in Salesforce
Gathering opportunity information along with the assigned owner
Cleaning the data
Sending a Slack notification to a channel of your choice
Sending any failures to an alerting workflow
