Invitation to a new confluence meeting note - Slack notification


I just have a small and simple question and I am exited, if somebody can help me.


Since some weeks we are using confluence for internal meeting notes. When we start a meeting, one of the participants creates a new meeting note in confluence and invites the other colleagues with the invite-function in the menu-bar. The colleagues will receive an e-mail now but I wan't them to get a Slack notification instead of an e-mail.

I didn't find out how to setup confluence and slack for that function.

Maybe someone can help me.

bye, Philipp

Hello @Philipp Hildebrandt

There are certain functions that can trigger Slack notifications (only when Slack is a connected app). In your case, you can create a parent page (let's say it's called 'Meeting Notes') in Confluence, and participants can create a child page under this parent for individual meetings (can be a template: 'Meeting Notes {Month, Day, Year}').

For this to work, you need to enable Slack notifications based on:

- When someone creates a child page 

You also need to specify a channel to send notifications to while setting up Confluence Cloud App in Slack.

Hope this helps :) 

Hi @Okan Erdogan ,

that seems to be a work around, but doesn't solve the dedicated case.

But thank you for your answer and the time you spent on it.

No problem @Philipp Hildebrandt :)

Hi @Okan Erdogan ,


I tried you workaround you gave me, but the problem is, that the trigger

"When someone creates a child page" only works with publishing event of a new page.

So that's not what I need, because I will notify the team about a new created page in the draft modus, so we can collaborate within this page during the meeting.
