Create new tasks and receive notifications in Slack


Our Slack integration is bi-directional: the inbound integration sends messages to a Slack channel whenever a task is created or dropped in a section (lane) in MeisterTask, whereas the outbound integration lets you insert tasks into a MeisterTask project directly from a Slack channel.

Using our Section Actions feature, project administrators can set up rules to send messages to a specific Slack channel whenever users move a task into a section, or create it there. The messages include all required metadata such as title, description, assignee as well as a link back to the task in MeisterTask. This is very useful for keeping team members informed about e.g. a new feature that is ready for review (i.e. has been moved to the Review lane), or a bug that has been fixed.

In the other direction, users can add tasks to a MeisterTask project directly from a Slack channel, including description, tags and assignee. On setup, the admin connects a Slack channel with a MeisterTask project and section. Using a simple syntax, users can then post new tasks / bugs / feature ideas directly from that channel. A confirmation message will be shown on the Slack channel after creation of the task and the task in MeisterTask will contain a link back to the exact point in the Slack conversation where it was created from.

Syntax and Example:
/mt task title[: description][@assignee][@watcher][+checklist item][+checklist item]
/mt iPad improvements +Fix landscape mode +Support touch ID @Oliver
