Using the Custom email notification list feature, you can integrate Stitch notifications with your Slack workspace.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through integrating your Stitch notifications with Slack using Slack’s email integration features: Email forwarding and the Email app.


Prerequisites

Using one of the two following methods, you can integrate Stitch email notifications with Slack:
