What's the difference between the Slack and Webhook workflows?
While you can use a Formium Webhook to send form data to Slack's Incoming Webhook integration, it will not be formatted very nicely. Formium leverages Slack's Webhook attachment API to pretty print submission data and include relevant links to your Formium dashboard.
