New Copilot integration: Access Backlog issues from Teams

We’re thrilled to announce a new integration for your workflows: Backlog is now fully compatible with Microsoft Copilot in Teams, making project management smoother and more efficient than ever before.

While Backlog has already been integrated with Teams, by leveraging Copilot’s natural language capabilities, users can now perform tasks such as searching for issues, adding comments, and updating assignments, all without leaving Teams.

Benefits of using Copilot

With the Copilot integration for Backlog, you can seamlessly search for Backlog issues directly from within Teams. No more toggling between tabs or losing your train of thought. This streamlined process ensures that you stay focused and productive — with all your project information right at your fingertips. Here’s how you can leverage the integration to enhance your project management experience:

Search Backlog issues

Gone are the days of juggling multiple applications. Now, you can simply use the search bar in Teams to look up Backlog issues using Copilot. Whether you need to find a specific assignment or browse through tasks related to a certain project, just ask Copilot to fetch it for you.

Add comments and updates

Need to update or leave a comment on a Backlog issue? With the Copilot integration, you can do all that without leaving Teams. Simply fetch the issue using the search bar and add your comments or updates directly within the Teams chat. It’s quick, convenient, and keeps your team in the loop in real time.

Utilize Copilot’s natural language capabilities

Copilot’s natural language processing makes searching for Backlog issues a breeze. Whether you’re asking for assignments related to a specific project, assigned to a particular team member, or with a deadline within a certain timeframe, Copilot understands your queries and fetches the relevant information instantly. 

For example, you could enter a query like, “Please tell me which Backlog assignments related to Copilot have due dates between January 1, 2024, and January 31, 2024,” and Copilot will fetch the relevant information for you.b
