Request connector steps in Workflow Builder

When building a workflow in Slack, you may want to add connector steps that let your workflow take actions in other services (like sending information to a Google spreadsheet). If your workspace or Enterprise Grid organisation requires app approval, you’ll need to request approval for connectors to add their steps to your workflows.


Submit a request

  1. From your desktop, click on your workspace name at the top left.
  2. Select Tools from the menu, then click Workflow Builder.
  3. Create a new workflow or open one that you have already created.
  4. Below Steps, find the connector that you’d like to use in the list of steps (or search for the name).
  5. Click Request. You’ll receive a direct message (DM) from Slackbot when your request has been reviewed.
