Hey again dear community
As Scripts newbie I still need your help: How do I get my bot to break down and report the data to be found on the Metrics tab of my sheet? Specifically, I want both figures on "CR Disputed" and "CR to check" in my report. 

Here's the  script (will skip the block-payload script, that one is working - YAY) posting just the bit i need help with

function botCRcheck() {
const ss = SpreadsheetApp.getActive();
let data = ss.getSheetByName('Metrics Disputed CR').getRange("A3:B7").getValues();
let payload = buildAlert(data);
function buildAlert(data) {
let crTocheck = data [3][1]

And here's a copy of the sheet, check the "Metrics" tab. 
Many many thanks <3 

I was also interested in creating a Script to auto-clean the sheet with the processed requests, anyone can give me a hint on how to start building it?

Try something like this:
function buildAlert(data) {
//each data item must be declared
let crDisputed = data[0][1]    //row1, col2 of data
let crTocheck = data[1][1]     //row2, col2 of data

let payload = {
      "blocks": [

...   skipped lines ...

        "type": "section",
        "text": {
          "type": "plain_text",
          "text": "CRs Disputed :" + crDisputed + "\nCR tickets to check :"  + crTocheck,       //I am guessing the "\n" will work as a "new line" character
          "emoji": true

Thanks a bunch! That worked! And I also realized that I was not calling the right range from the data variable -_- Thanks again!!!
