New: Stay updated with Backlog personal notifications in Slack

Have you ever found yourself toggling back and forth between Backlog and Slack, trying to keep up with all your notifications and tasks? We know the struggle, which is why we’re excited about our latest addition to our feature that updates you directly in Slack whenever you’re mentioned in Backlog. 

In addition to the existing notifications you already receive for creating and updating issues and adding comments, you can now receive notifications addressed to you directly in Slack. No more missing out on critical updates – everything you need will be right there in Slack.

In Backlog, a personal notification is sent whenever you’re tagged in a comment, a new issue, an updated issue, or you’re assigned to an issue. With our latest Slack integration update, these notifications will now pop up as direct messages, ensuring you never miss an important update.

Why you’ll love this update

In Backlog, you always get a notification whenever you are tagged in an issue. These notifications are crucial, but constantly switching between Backlog and Slack can be disruptive. 

With Backlog notifications now popping up directly in Slack, you can stay focused on your work without jumping between apps, keep track of your tasks and comments effortlessly, and ensure you never miss an important update.

How to set it up

Setting up this feature is a breeze. Here’s how you can get started:

  1. Install the Backlog App for Slack
    If you’ve already installed it, you don’t need to reinstall it.
  2. Run the Slash Command /backlog settings in Slack
  3. Click the “Enable” Button in the message that appears
  4. Setup is Complete

Now, every time you receive a personal notification in Backlog, you’ll get a direct message in Slack, keeping you informed and up-to-date.

And that’s it! Now, every time you get a personal notification in Backlog, it will appear as a direct message in Slack, keeping you updated and informed without any extra effort.
