— reminds of a list of accessible commands and links to Q&A and support
/ws list — provides a current list of projects with cardinal numbers. These numbers will be used to set tasks for a project.
Please, note that this list does not contain all of your worksection projects with only those present where the Slack user was added into the team. The Slack > Worksection integration will work only with such projects.
/ws list N — the list of all open tasks of the project with the N number. Learning about N can be done with the help of the /ws list command
/ws team N — shows the list of all the N project’s team. If you have not indicated the number — the command of the first of the available projects will be shown.
Please, note that this command will be useful if you wish to create a task and assign an executive right from Slack. In order to do this, email of one of the project’s participants needs to be indicated which can be identified with the help of the /ws team N command
/ws add N name_of_task — creates a task in your Worksection account in the project with the number N. Of course, you do not need to remember all of the cardinal numbers; therefore, before setting a task from Slack — obtain a current list of projects with the help of /ws list command
1 command /ws add 3 Urgent to do it — creates the «Urgent to do it» task in the project number 3. The same command (without the number at the beginning) will add the task into the first project in the list. If you enable Slack only in one of the projects — there is no need to write a number.
2 after a certain time, Slack will receive a notification from Worksection that the task has been created.
This happens automatically because Worksection, knowing that this task was set from Slack, assigns it as an author by the Slack user. In the role of the author, the Slack user is automatically subscribed to the task notifications and transfers its own notification that such a task is created in the specified channel of your Slack account.
As a reminder
, the task from Slack to WS can be set only into
those projects whose commands already have Slack bot-users. Also, notifications are transmitted only from such projects back to Slack.
Optional parameters of /ws add command
By default, a task for «any employee» is created with no deadlines or description with 1 priority. However, there are options... Creating tasks from Slack, you can indicate not only the name but also all of the desired parameters.
For example, this command
/ws add 3 Urgent task  <[email protected]> (5d)
Add some description here, after Shift+Enter
It will create an «Urgent task» task in the project № 3 with 10 priority, set a project’s member with the [email protected] email address as an executive, and set a deadline for task completion in 5 days. Besides, all the text in the second line becomes the description.
Thus, you can add these optional parameters :Task priority
— write a number from 1 to 10 in bracketsExecutive
— place the executive’s email in < >Deadline
— Indicate the number of days for the completion in parenthesis (number with the letter d)Description
— move the line with the help of shift
. Everything written on the new line will be the description of the task.Advice:
if you do not remember the email address of the employee you would like to assign as an executive of a task — use the /ws team N
command. If you do not remember N — the use /ws list
