Help Center IntegrationsLast updated: 23 October, 2023

slack web change detection notifications allows you to track changes in websites and get notified instantly via your preferred method. In this article we will discuss how you can setup PageCrawl to receive notifications in Slack.


  • You need an account. If you don't already have one, go here to register an account and setup pages you wish to track.
  • You need a Slack account.

Create Incoming Webhook Connector

Follow the steps below to create a new Incoming Webhook connector

1. Install "Incoming Webhooks" integration in your Slack workspace

Visit to enable "Incoming WebHooks" for your workspace.

Please note, this is a legacy custom integration - an outdated way for teams to integrate with Slack. You may create Slack app instead, but the setup procedure of "Slack app" is significantly longer so we suggest using the legacy integration.

2. Click "Add to Slack" to continue

Simply click "Add to Slack" button. You may be prompted to sign in to your Slack account.

slack add incoming webhook

3. Select channel or create a new channel.

Here you will need to select a Slack channel where the messages from bot should be sent to and press "Add Incoming Webhook integration"

slack select channel for incoming webhook

4. Copy the "URL".

Finally you should receive URL address. Copy it and paste in the notification settings as indicated below. Slack copy incoming webhook url

Set Webhook URL in

If you would like to receive notifications for all tracked pages, simply paste webhook URL in user notification preferences.

If you only want a single page to be notified via Slack. Just set this Webhook URL for a specific page.


What if I can't the app? You should ensure you have permissions from the Slack workspace owner.

I didn't receive a notification Please wait for page to change. We will only send a notification when we detect a change.

I receive too many notifications? What can I do? You may setup notification rules to be notified only when e.g. text disappears, number increases, etc.

Other supported notification channels

We do have more supported notification channels to suit everyone's preferences.
