Notify the team before an e-mail is sent

Hi guys,

I am trying to create a flow that will notify a certain group of people before/after and e-mail is sent.

 

The idea is that the whole team is aware that there is an upcoming send (for example) on Thursday at 10:00 a.m. or that the anticipated e-mail has gone out (The e-mail went out.).

I am unable to find a suitable solution. I tried the "Send alert" step, however, I ended up flooding an inbox with 2000 confirmation messages, as it sent a separate e-mail message for each of the mails that went out.

 

I tried with "Send alert" step right before the "Send" step, but that ended up in nothing.

 

I'm also using webhooks to Slack to notify for specific actions (clicks/opens..) and would also settle for Slack notifications, but I'm afraid testing the "Call webhook" after the "Send" step would also result in a few thousand messages in Slack.

 

Any ideas or experience with this?
