The Slack Notification Plugin is a Joget Workflow plugin that automatically sends a message to the corresponding Slack Messaging user on new process tasks.
The message will appear in the user's Slackbot channel.
In contrast, the Slack Webhook Tool plugin is tied into the process workflow as a tool and you can push messages to any Slack #channels.
Upon importing this plugin, go to 'Web Console > Properties & Export > Set Plugin Default Properties' and add the Slack Notification Plugin.
This plugin was designed based on the Slack Incoming Webhook API. Do read it for instructions to obtain the 'Webhook URL' value from your Slack app.
