Posting new registrations to Slack

Slack is a messaging app for teams. We love it here at Tito (I’m sure many of you do too) and it forms an integral part of both our internal and external communication.

Step 1.

Jump into Slack and select “Apps & integrations” from the main menu.

From the App Directory, type and select “Incoming WebHooks”.
