Zapier template - Slack & Printfection

This Zap allows your team to generate and distribute a Giveaway link via slack. Now it's even easier to empower your team to giveaway great swag.

In any public Slack channel, your team will enter a specified command and a Printfection Giveaway URL will be returned via slackbot. This link can be sent to a prospect, customer, or employee to redeem a swag gift.

In order to use this Zap you need an active Slack account.  You'll also want to make sure you have an active Printfection Giveaway Campaign configured that you will use with this connection.
