How TeamGantt’s Slack integration works

Here’s a quick rundown of the features available in TeamGantt’s Slack integration so you can make the most of this app connection.

Create new tasks

You have 2 options for creating TeamGantt tasks directly from Slack so nothing slips through the cracks.

Option 1: Use Slack actions to create a new task.

  1. Hover over the Slack message you want to take action on, and click the 3 dots that appear to the right.
  2. Select Create Task from the action menu.
  3. The task name will default to the Slack message text. Go with the default, or give the task a name of your own.
  4. Choose the project you want to add the new task to.

Click the Create button to add the task to TeamGantt.

Option 2: Use the /tg create task slash command to add a task.

  1. Type /tg create task into a Slack message.
  2. Enter the task name, and choose the project you want to add it to.

Click the green Create button to add the task to TeamGantt.

Tip: Be sure to assign the task to a team member and schedule start and end dates in TeamGantt once the task has been added from Slack.

View and update daily tasks

Staying on top of your TeamGantt tasks is easy in Slack. You have a few different options for accessing your daily list of TeamGantt tasks in Slack:

  • Type /tg today into a Slack message.
  • Type /tg settings to set up a daily task reminder via your notification preferences.
  • Click TeamGantt under the Apps menu at the bottom of the left column of Slack.

You can update any task listed by clicking one of the following actions:

  • Quick Update: Enables you to update progress or add a comment to the task directly from Slack.
  • Open in TeamGantt: Opens the task in TeamGantt where you can upload files or update additional task details, such as task notes, checklist items, or assignments.

Access active projects

Want a direct line from Slack to your TeamGantt projects? Simply follow these steps.

  1. Type /tg projects into a Slack message to pull up a list of your active projects in Slack.
  2. Want to filter your project list? Add a search term to the end of the slash command. For example, entering /tg projects website will narrow your list down to active projects with “website” in the name.

From there, you can jump right to the project’s List, Calendar, or Discussion view by clicking on the buttons below the project you want to go to in TeamGantt.

  2. Select the frequency and time of day you’d like to be reminded about daily tasks in Slack.
  3. Click the green Update button to make it so.
