Hello Automation Pros,
Has anyone found a way to deliver aesthetically pleasing graphs or charts via Slack? We have a few use cases for this, but most of all I’d like to deliver a table or bar graph of outbound payments on a periodic basis.

Workato has a charts connector to generate a bar/pie chart. It's fairly basic so I'm not sure if it meets the "aesthetics" requirement.
This connector returns a chart URL, which unfurls into an image when posted in Slack.
The other option would be using tools like Tableau to generate the dashboard images, then using Workato to download these images using their API, and uploading the image as a file in Slack.

Hmn…learned another new thing today 😊 Thank you Chi!
I think we need an automation to auto recommend steps.
