Automate Tasks in Aha! Develop
Assigning code reviews. Updating the status of work. Linking features and pull requests. These are just some of the recurring tasks development teams spend precious time on each day. Even automating just some of them would free you up to focus on more significant work. The good news is that now you can automate them in Aha! Develop.
You can now add code-based automations to extensions in Aha! Develop — to reduce manual tasks and improve your workflows.
With this update, you can add event handlers to extensions to automate actions within Aha! Develop — and across other tools as well. Aha! Develop surfaces more than 10 events, such as updating workflow status, adding a tag, and assigning users.
Think of these events as the triggers for your automations. Add a code-based automation to any extension via an event handler to define what action should follow the event. Even better, we host and run the extension code for you. No need to set up your own infrastructure.
Let's take a look at two ways you can use code-based automations:
Automate repetitive tasks
Create an extension to automate routine tasks — such as adding tags to features, assigning to-dos, or updating feature status. In the example below, we added an event handler to an extension. Now when a "Security review" tag is added to a feature, a to-do is automatically created and assigned to the security team. This ensures a smooth handoff between teams.
Keep your development tools in sync
Use Aha! Develop as your source of truth and keep other tools in sync as you make progress on work. In the example below, we added an event handler to the Zendesk extension. When a record status changes in Aha! Develop, the ticket in Zendesk is also updated. This keeps the support team in the loop automatically — so they can proactively inform customers of progress.
Create customized automations for your team to save time in your daily work and be happy.
We hope automations in Aha! Develop will make it easier for you to focus more time on the work you love. Even if you cannot automate away all of your repetitive tasks, you can feel satisfied knowing that you are making the most of the time you have. What you choose to automate can have a big impact on your productivity.
