Slack: send a message to myself (or a specific user)

Hey, I guess everything is in the title :slight_smile:
It seems that we can send a message to a channel, but I didn’t find how to send a message to myself or a specific user

Hi @vinnysud, you would need to provide the ID of the respective user in the Slack node. You can either fetch these IDs through n8n’s Slack node (by fetching a list of members in a channel for example) or copy it from the URL of a Slack user profile (e.g. in a URL like, the ID would be U02GU6BEXQB).

With the ID in the Channel field you can then send a direct message to a user:


Hope this helps!
