We use the Giphy Slack app to quickly add a witty or sarcastic response to someone (we like each other really). And we also know that a lot of our customers use our Slack integration to receive alerts, because who wants emails. Then one morning, this conversation happened – where else – but on Slack. Including a GIF: So, yeah, you can now add GIFs from Giphy to your RapidSpike alerts.
