Integration with Slack, Desktop
notifications, API

Hel­lo, dear friends!

We would like to intro­duce you to some cool new fea­tures for this hot sum­mer.

Desk­top notifications

If you are using Chrome, then start­ing today you can be noti­fied of new Work­sec­tion-events on the desk­top of your computer.

For this, accept the sub­scribe” offer when sign­ing in to your account or sim­ply acti­vate func­tion 1 in your pro­file alt + M. Here you can cus­tomize the types of noti­fi­ca­tions that you wish to receive on your com­put­er and tele­phone 2.

Please, note! Noti­fi­ca­tions come even if your brows­er is closed. If you are using Work­sec­tion on mul­ti­ple com­put­ers, you can receive noti­fi­ca­tions on each of them.

For Fire­fox users, this fea­ture is also avail­able, but noti­fi­ca­tions are dis­played only when brows­er is open.

Inte­gra­tion with Slack

Many of our clients have been curi­ous from time to time whether we have inte­gra­tion with the pop­u­lar mes­sen­ger Slack”. Well, we are hap­py to present you with some good news. We have cre­at­ed a flex­i­ble, intu­itive­ly under­stand­able two-way inte­gra­tion. Not only can you trans­mit the desired noti­fi­ca­tions from Work­sec­tion into Slack but also assign tasks direct­ly from the Slack in Worksection.

Here’s how it works. By con­nect­ing inte­gra­tion with Slack, you get a user-bot in your com­pa­ny. If you need this user-bot to trans­mit events from a project to the Slack chan­nel, just include the bot to the project team and sub­scribe it to all the tasks. If you wish to stop such trans­mis­sion – then exclude the bot from the project. If you need the bot to trans­mit only cer­tain types of noti­fi­ca­tions — edit the noti­fi­ca­tion set­tings in its pro­file as if it were a nor­mal user.

Simul­ta­ne­ous­ly with the appear­ance of Slack user in Work­sec­tion, there appears a bot-team /​worksection или /​ws (same but short­er) in Slack.

Using work­sec­tion-bot through /​ws (or /​worksection) in com­bi­na­tion with one of the four com­mands opens up a num­ber of possibilities.

Right from Slack, you can: 

see the list of Work­sec­tion projects inte­grat­ed with Slack (those where Slack-bot is a project’s participant)

show the list of open tasks in any of the inte­grat­ed projects

show the list of participants

add a new task into any inte­grat­ed project with the option to indi­cate all the nec­es­sary para­me­ters, such as pri­or­i­ty, exec­u­tive, time­frame and even description…

We won’t go into too many details about this since there is a whole sec­tion with all the nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion about inte­gra­tion of WS and Slack. If this is of inter­est to you, then please pro­ceed here https://​work​sec​tion​.com/​e​n​/​s​l​a​c​k​-​a​p​p​.html

API Work­sec­tion

If you need oth­er inte­gra­tions with Work­sec­tion, you can con­tact us with your sug­ges­tions or imple­ment them your­self with the help of our API.

API works at the account’s own­er rights and allows obtain­ing lists of tasks, projects, users and set­ting new tasks, sub­tasks, and writ­ing com­ments. Enabling API and obtain­ing the key for its use can be done by the Own­er of an account on the Account /​Security page
