  6. If you would like to be notified for every comment on a graph, tick the check box Transfer all user comments by each channel. If this box is left unchecked, you must use the @slack-account_name-channel_name syntax in order for comments to be posted to Slack. You may use @slack-channel_name if you are only using one account or referring to the first account.

You can also configure sending alerts to Slack from monitors and the event stream.
