    Yes, you should be able to see the user who posted in Slack within your space.

    I just enabled a slack integration using zapier http://zapier.com  to integrate a new page from OneNote to slack.

    when i create a new one note page it publishes to the same channel in slack I've enabled Workspace to post to as well

    However, my posting from OneNote-> slack via Zapier won't show up into Workspace.  is this on  the table to work?

    Hello Donald,

    Let me take that scenario to the development team.  Wondering if slack is not calling the integration we have added to it when a message is created via another integration (ie. allowing for integration chaining).

    Hi Donald,

    The current release of our Slack to Workspace integration does not allow passing messages generated by other bots/apps.

    Guys,, this is still happening. The user name is not being passed to Workspace from Slack

    Hi Donald,

    The issue where messages arriving from Slack to a Workspace are without a user name is a known issue that is being worked on now.

    The problem: The Slack user did not fill in the "Real Name" field in his profile, which is the field we are passing to Workspace.

    The fix in our code will use the short name, in case the Real Name is not available.
