Does your team use multiple tools to get projects done? Good news! TeamGantt plays well with others so your team can be a lean and mean project machine.

Here are 5 TeamGantt integrations that can help you save time and headaches as you push toward the finish line together.  

Slack: Turn random asks into project tasks

Slack’s a standard collaboration tool on lots of project teams. But it can be tough to keep track of conversations that leave you with some kind of to-do.

Enter the TeamGantt for Slack integration. It fills in the gap so pop-up requests don’t slip through the cracks.

Create TeamGantt task using Slack actions

Here’s a quick look at the features TeamGantt’s Slack integration brings to the table:

  • Create TeamGantt tasks from Slack chats: Add new tasks to your TeamGantt projects directly from Slack using actions or slash commands.
  • Stay on top of daily tasks: View your daily task list and update task progress right from Slack.
  • Quickly access active projects: Pull a list of active projects into Slack—and filter by search terms.
  • Manage your notifications: Choose when and how often you want to be notified about TeamGantt tasks.
  • Collaborate easily on tasks: Reply to comment mentions on TeamGantt tasks without ever leaving Slack.

How to connect TeamGantt with Slack

This handy tutorial walks you through all the ins and outs of using the TeamGantt for Slack integration. To get started, simply follow these steps:

Trello: Link TeamGantt tasks to boards

If you love gantt charts but have die-hard Trello fans on your team, you can use the TeamGantt Power-up for Trello to bring your two worlds together.

With TeamGantt’s Trello integration, you can view your Trello cards in a project timeline and use drag-and-drop functionality to move things around. Schedule tasks, create dependencies between cards, assign resources, and update progress—all without leaving Trello.

You have the flexibility to determine how cards sync to TeamGantt. Sync individual cards to TeamGantt manually, or let it happen automatically at the board level. It’s your choice!

How to integrate TeamGantt with Trello

Ready to get started? These steps show you how to set up the TeamGantt Power-Up for Trello:

  1. Log in to your Trello account.
  2. While viewing one of your boards, click Show Menu, then click Power-Ups.
  3. Select the TeamGantt Power-Up.

RESTful API: Build your own custom integrations

Does your team have another tool in your project management belt? If so, ask your favorite developer to build a custom integration using TeamGantt’s public RESTful API! 💪

Use the API to complete CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) actions between TeamGantt and your app. Here's the TeamGantt data that’s available to integrate:

  • Discussions
  • Groups of tasks
  • Projects
  • Tasks
  • Task dependencies
  • Task resources
  • Tracked time
  • Workloads
  • Checklists

How to use TeamGantt’s RESTful API

Getting started with TeamGantt’s public API is simple! Here’s how it works:

  1. First, generate a bearer token for your app by going to Account Settings > Configure API Access (beta) or by clicking here.

  1. Next, visit our API documentation.

Right now, our API is in beta testing. So just keep in mind that some things could change before it’s all said and done. Of course, that also means you get to have a say in how this integration takes shape. If you’ve got any feedback about our API, we'd love to hear it!
