Personal slack notifications

Would like to see personal Slack notifications for user that triggered the workflow and just send to that person the notifications

    I'd like to see this too. It would be great if it could post in a shared channel, and @ the Slack user who triggered the build. This would probably require some set up to map github users to slack users, which I would be happy to do in order to get this feature set up for myself.

    Here's a 3rd-party app that provides Slack DM notifications for only your builds – https://pullreminders.com

    I currently solved this by setting up a shared channel for the project notifications, and setting a keyword for my GitHub username, but it'd be nice to have personal slack notifications just like there is email

    Hi Folks. Does the Slack Orb  https://circleci.com/orbs/registry/orb/circleci/slack fit your needs? It offers greater flexibility than our old 1.0 notifications system.

    I've been using that Slack Orb, and it works really well for most things, however it isn't really configured for sending personal notifications which is a shame.

     

    For most of the commands in that orb you could set the 'channel' to be a slack username and it does in fact send the notification to that user (I've tested this), the problem is that CircleCI cannot match a git user who committed something to a slack username.

     

    If you only ever wanted to message the same user then you can easily hard code this and it will work, but if you were hoping to have CircleCI message the user that initiated a build then currently I don't think that is possible.

    I also think this would be really useful - I'm most interested when my build fails.

    It would also be cool if it pinged the users associated with the git commits deployed in the circleci deployment.
