I’m trying to use the User Settings feature I added a Setting item that allow the user to select where to get notifications. Slack or Push. When I’m in workflow and needs to send notification to

a user, how do I check what is the settings selected by that user? Is that possible? e.g. GET_OTHER_USERSETTINGS(email, settings_name)

No, that isn’t possible. User Settings are local to each user’s device. It sounds like what you want is to have a permanent central table where each person records some preferences. So try that instead. Set it up as a table with a single row per user. Use a slice on the table so that each user “sees” only their own preference row. You cannot use a security filter because then one user’s preference would not be visible to the other user’s workflow rule.

I added a topic in the “Workflow” article describing the technique Praveen outlined.
