WooCommerce Slack notifications for order statuses
We think this use case is especially handy, as it supports custom order statuses, so you can configure very specific scenarios for sending messages to Slack.
We picked a few:
- order changes from “ready to ship” to “shipped”,
- order changes from “pending” or “on-hold” to “cancelled”,
- order changes to “failed”.
Let’s get started!
In your WordPress dashboard go to menu: ShopMagic → Add New to start adding a new automation.
Enter automation name for your reference, select order status changed event and configure statuses:
Now scroll to the Actions meta box and select Post to Slack action. You will be able to configure the message:
You can configure the following fields:
- Message: create a message that will be sent to Slack. You can use placeholders here.
- Channel: select a channel to post to.
- Name: enter a name that will appear next to the message.
- Emoji: enter an emoji for the message.
