How to Post a Slack Message from SharePoint

Slack is an incredibly powerful team collaboration tool that has gained a lot of enterprise speed over the last few years.

In this post, we'll cover the basics for making a simple messaging call from SharePoint to Slack where we post a link to the current SharePoint page.
