How it worksin your Slack Channel

Get started in less than a minute

Create and manage your tasks directly in Slack

After inviting Workstreams to your channel or private group you can start directly with planning your project while creating tasks with /plan task name.

After adding a new task a task box will appear. With the controls in the message, you can change its status, assign a channel member to it, add a label, change your task's title and add a description among many other possibilities.

Find fast what you're looking for

Search for your task

By simply typing /tasks, you can search for tasks by name and made changes to your task easily.

Everything in one place

Add attachements

You can easily add images and other related documents to your task by posting your file into the channel and react on that with a paperclip emojy. The workstreams bot will ask to which task you want to attach your file.

Stay up to date

Get notified about updates on tasks in Slack's threads

Be informed what's being worked on in your team. Get notified about updates on tasks that you are involved or interested in and receive push notifications on Slack's mobile and desktop app.

See how you're doing

Get cumulative flow charts and burndown charts

Let your team celebrate their own success: just ask the Bot „@workstreams How are we doing?“. The generated Flow Chart is channel related and visualizes your team’s effort. You can easily check the current status and see how much tasks have been done, are in progress or planned.

If you are working with Goals you can also get a Burndown Chart, which measures all related tasks to this Goal. It works over channel borders and shows the performance of your team within a certain time.

Both charts are accessible directly in Slack and from the task board.

How it worksin your Task Board

Keep oversight

All your tasks in a Kanban style task board

Use boards for any channel, private group and even personal tasks. Combine channels on one board or focus on each channel individually.

The created task in Slack will automatically appear on your task board. By clicking on the task title you will be redirected to your task board. You can visit your task board also by typing https://workstreams.rplan.com in your browser's address bar. And there you can create new task too.

Make it work for you

Customize your own worksteps

You can adjust the number and names of the worksteps in the task board, so that it fits to your needs. The worksteps are defined per channel.

Your developer team needs worksteps like in work, ready for review, in review etc. And your recruiters are working in steps like first call, technical interview and coding dojo. It's easy to set up. Check it out!

Structured organization made simple

Group tasks with labels

Labels are individually defined and provide a powerful way to logically group tasks. Within the project overview, labels are organized by color-coding each task and can be used over channel borders.

Tasks contribute to goals once the task is assigned the goal’s label., in review etc. And your recruiters are working in steps like first call, technical interview and coding dojo. It's easy to set up. Check it out!

Display only relevant tasks for you

Filtering

The aim of filtering is to compact your project view down to the items you want to focus on. Filtering can be done based on each attribute of your task, e.g. its name, assigned team member, labels or due dates.

Filtering is related to all tasks, which are currently visible in your board regardless of whether you have selected one or more channels.

Track progress on what matters

Associate your tasks with Goals using labels

A goal can be a release of a feature, closing a deal or coming to an important decision. Everyone in your Slack team can create goals and associate tasks with them.

When tasks are completed, the progress bar on their associated goals fills up. This makes it easier to get an overview of progress and keeps teams focused and motivated.
