  1. Sign in to Zapier
  2. Click on Make a Zap and choose Webhooks by Zapier as the trigger
  3. Select Catch Hook as the trigger event
  4. Click Continue
  5. Next, you'll see a Custom Webhook URL. Copy it, leave the window open, and navigate to Kisi.

  1. Sign in to Kisi
  2. Navigate to Organization Setup
  3. Click on Integrations > Add Integration

  5. From the Type dropdown choose Event Webhook
  6. In the URL field enter the Custom Webhook URL copied from Zapier
  7. Click Save

  3. Click Continue
  4. Choose Slack
  5. Set Action Event to Send Channel Message
  6. Click Continue

Set it up in Slack

  1. Sign in to Slack
  2. Choose the channel where you want the Kisi events to be shown
