Slack to Gsheets - user email not ID

Hello, I am considering creating a Slack to Gsheets connection. I looked at your video and it is exactly what I want:
Just one question, is it possible to add custom fields to populate other columns in the Gsheet? E.g. column "city" and I want to capture not only the message on Slack, but also a specific city about which the message is about. To achieve this I guess there should be a field that would send the data to my specific column

In slack you don't have fields. One thing you can try is from message body you can extract the city via text parser(Use Extract pattern as an action).
E.g. This is the message coming in from Slack

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

City-Ahmedabad

Why do we use it?​

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

-------------------------------
So in this example you can we have passed City-Ahmedabad, that is format you always need to fllow. City-CITY_NAME_HERE

Then use Text Formatter - Extract Pattern action
