Zapier: Trigger SMS alerts from Slack mentions
With this Zapier SMS integration, you can start sending SMS alerts to your colleagues via Slack.
How it works
When you or your colleague mentions another user on a specific Slack channel of your choice, Burst SMS will automatically send an SMS alert to them. As a result, it helps them stay on top of important discussions and urgent issues, like server outages.
The beauty is that SMS alerts don’t require a Wi-Fi or mobile data connection, only a cellular one, so they’ll likely receive a notification wherever they are.
You may also wish to create a specific Slack channel for this integration, such as #urgent, to help keep things organised and to prevent too many unintended alerts.
