The e-mail schedules can be used to send a dashboard (image, PDF, Excel or CSVs) to Slack channels. This functionality uses the Slack Email App and a specifically created mail-in e-mail address. When we send e-mails to Slack e-mail addresses, we format it so it renders correctly in Slack. Please note:
- The channels can be both public or private.
- The e-mails sent to slack are sent separately from regular user e-mails, so in case you choose the "Hide this address" option in Slack, it is not exposed in the `To:` field of the e-mail.
- You can also use this functionality for SQL alerts - the alert email is also adjusted to work correctly in Slack.
