How to Boost Productivity with GanttPRO: Slack Integration
Do you want to optimize processes, increase the productivity of your team, and not waste time switching between tools?
We have a solution. It will help you work in two platforms at the same time – in the messenger and online project management tool. Moreover, your working processes will be synchronized.
Just a few weeks after a big and so much anticipated release with the improved resource workload we are happy to share another great news with you: from now on, GanttPRO integrates with Slack.
How GanttPRO and Slack integration works:
- Connecting GanttPRO to Slack.
- Connecting GanttPRO projects to Slack channels.
- Notifications from GanttPRO to Slack.
- Commands from Slack to GanttPRO.
- Disabling the integration.
Connecting GanttPRO to Slack
To integrate GanttPRO and Slack, go to your profile settings, then “Integration and API”, and choose Slack.
In the next tab, choose a Slack account that you need to connect to and click “Allow”.
Please note: an account Owner should be the first one who creates this connection. After that, the connection will be available for Admins and Members.
Due to security reasons, an Admin and a Member can’t connect any other Slack account. It should match the account that the Owner has connected.
Connecting GanttPRO projects to Slack channels
As soon as the integration is on, any user can connect projects from GanttPRO online Gantt chart software to Slack channels.
The connection has a many-to-many relationship. It means that you can connect more than one project to one channel or one project to a few channels.
After choosing a project and a channel, you need to specify the notifications you want to receive. They will be sent to the channel automatically.
Notifications from GanttPRO to Slack
From GanttPRO to Slack, the following notifications are available:
- Creating a new task.
- Changing task status.
- Adding a new comment to a task.
- Attaching a new file to a task.
- Assigning a new resource to a task.
- Changing a start date of a task.
You can set up or edit notifications in two ways:
- The window where you connect GanttPRO projects to Slack channels.
- On the upper right corner of your screen (available after the integration is set up).
Commands from Slack to GanttPRO
From Slack to GanttPRO, the following commands are available:
- Creating a new task.
- Converting a message in Slack into a comment to a task.
- Converting a message in Slack into a new task.
Disabling the integration
To disable the integration, an Owner should go to the window with GanttPRO projects and Slack channels connection and choose “Delete integration”. The integration will be disabled for the account and all users. All connections between GanttPRO projects and Slack channels will be deleted.
