Check out this video on the pitfalls of sending notifications via email👇
If you're not familiar with Slack, it's a communication tool that allows you to direct message someone belonging to the same workspace or chat with a group of people via a channel.
Many companies have their own Slack workspaces to allow their employees to easily communicate, share files, gifs, and emojis.
In these same companies Slack usage is rapidly replacing email due to its much more collaborative and real-time nature.
It's the same collaborative and real-time functionality that amplifies the value of a Quick Base notification, when it's sent to a Slack channel.
Don't spend thousands of dollars outsourcing when you can invest in developing your own skills! In just a day you'll learn what would normally take hundreds of hours to research and test.
All of the following and more will be available to you when you enroll in the Cracking the Webhook Code for Slack Notifications online course.

Quick Base setup guide for your test Quick Base
"Over the years I've probably received thousands of email notifications from Quick Base. And, while they can be informative, they can also be a burden.
Partly this is because they appear in my already overflowing inbox and more often than not get de-prioritized for the issues of the day.
I have to admit when webhooks first came out, I wasn't too keen on learning them. It seemed like a huge task to overcome learning a new language like JSON or XML.
But when I discovered that they could be used to send notifications to Slack and skip the inbox, I had to find out how.
Learning a new language is never easy, but I pushed on researching & testing (and testing some more).
Once I cracked the code I could write a webhook message like nobody's business, and my inbox thanked me.
My only wish is that I would have had the opportunity to implement them on a wider scale sooner.
Now I help others get over their fear of webhooks and learn how to write them for Slack messages in record time!"
Below are several excerpts from videos in the Cracking the Webhook Code for Slack Notificatons course.
"Your website & instructional videos have been instrumental in my journey through Quick Base app development. The first video I watched was about customizing rich text fields, I think it's called something like "wow you can do that with a rich text field?". I was hooked after that. Quick Base Junkie is a lifesaver - Thank you so much for the work you do!"
"Trust me I have watched many videos from your website. "
"I discovered your channel some months back. Wish a channel like yours existed when I started working with Quickbase last year lol ... A great resource for people just getting started with QB and even those who need a quick refresher. I'll be sure to recommend your channel to anyone I know that works with QB and is looking for well crafted tutorials :D"
"I’ve been looking at your website and appreciate all the great content you have available there! I also just subscribed to your mailing list and look forward to getting your emails and learning new tricks."
"I love your website, it seems like a great reference for new and experienced users... I've bookmarked your site and I'm looking forward to using it as a reference regularly!"

I know it's possible to learn all the information contained in this course in other ways. That's how I did it. But it's an understatement to say was hard and time-consuming.
What I've done with this course is take all that information, knowledge, and experience and package it up.
I've consolidated the documentation from both Quick Base and Slack into one concise resource that will save you boatloads of time.
In addition, this course is rich with features not offered anywhere else!
These features seamlessly work together to enable you to learn how to write webhooks for Slack notifications FAST!
This course is for:
This course contains:
Webhooks can be built to interface with a great many different applications. This course teaches how to build them to specifically send notifications to a Slack channel as a message. It is not intended to teach webhooks in general. The only exception is the lesson on Multi Record Actions where I do teach a bit on creating a Quick Base to Quick Base webhook using XML.
I teach the JSON necessary to build out the message body for your incoming Slack webhook, however this course is not intended to teach everything there is to know about coding in JSON.
In this course I cover how to use the Slack fields that you'll most likely need for your notification messages. However, there are other Slack fields that will not be covered. Where to find information on them is included in the course's FAQ section.
This course includes sections for Troubleshooting and answers to FAQs. I will do my best to answer questions you have about implementing the webhooks taught in this course, however I will not be able to troubleshoot your formulas for you.
