Sending notifications by folders and tags just got easier. With our latest update, you can now filter out information so that you only receive what is relevant to your team. By setting up this integration, you can send notifications for specific event types to individual channels in Slack or HipChat, filtered by folders and tags.

Once this feature is enabled for your team, you will see the option to apply “Filters” for each integration under each event type.
