Generate Slack Notification for Tasks Created via a Wrike Request Form

Hello!

We use an externally available request form for our clients and users to submit support requests to our team. We have also set up our Wrike account to notify us in Slack when new tasks are created in Wrike.

We noticed that we do get a Slack notification if someone from our team creates a task via Wrike and also when we create a task via email, but not get a Slack notification when a task is created via an externally published request form. We confirmed with the Wrike product team that this is the expected behavior but from our point of view, it is undesirable.

Ideally, we would like to get a Slack notification when a task is created via the request form because those are tasks that are coming from our clients and are most important to be informed of! 
 
Please enable this feature!
 
Thanks!

Hi Keir, checking with the team here, this should be working so I'd like to run through this with you. I'm going to raise a ticket to the Support Team to get started. You'll get notification of this ticket by email soon.

Thanks for getting in touch here 🙂

What was the outcome of this issue?, we are having the same issues with general Wrike Inbox notifications not pulling through when tasks are created via requests forms- not ideal, currently logged with support. Hope this can be resolved asap.

I'm looking for the exact same guidance. My team evaluates requests right away as they are made, and now that we are using Slack, we're living in it. Thanks!

Hey Katy German

To receive Slack notifications, you need to enable the integration, then enable the notifications by folder (here are the instructions). Then you can set up a request form: a task created after the form submission should be put into the folder where Slack notifications are enabled. Hope this is helpful, but please let me know if anything's unclear! 🙂

Hi Lisa, Is that notiifcation system available for Outlook? I want to get an email notification when a request form is submitted. Is there another way?

Hey George Evano! It is possible to get an email notification when a request is submitted - you have to be an assignee there. When an admin creates a request, they can assign users to a task/project created upon the request submission. Please make sure that in your notification preferences, you have the "someone assigns me a task" option checked:

Hope this helps! 🙌
