Aha! Roadmaps | Integrate with Microsoft Teams

Aha! Roadmaps powers your strategic planning so your strategy can inform every conversation you have about managing and prioritizing cross-functional work. Most of those conversations happen directly in Aha! Roadmaps, but many teams also rely on Microsoft Teams for real-time collaboration across the company.

Teams conversations are quick and immediate, but to be useful, they need strategic context. Aha! offers a one-way integration with Microsoft Teams so you can create an Aha! Roadmaps activity stream in Teams to funnel your roadmapping updates into one Teams channel.

In this article, we will cover the prerequisites and a brief overview of each integration.

In Microsoft teams

  1. Open Microsoft Teams and select App.

  2. Choose Incoming Webhook.

  3. Enter your Microsoft Team and click Open.

  4. Select the channel where you want to receive updates and click Set up.

  5. Name your webhook (e.g. "Aha! updates").

  6. Download the Aha! avatar and upload it as the webhook image.

  7. Click Create.

  8. Copy the webhook URL. Click Done.

In Aha!

  1. Start by adding the integration using the + icon located at Settings ⚙️ → Account or Settings ⚙️ → Workspace → Integrations for your account or workspace.

  2. Enter the URL into the Webhook URL field.

  3. Click the Test connection button. After a moment, you should see a message appear in the Microsoft Teams channel you chose in Step 1.

  4. Customize the integration by selecting the types of updates that you would like sent to your Microsoft Teams channel. You can also choose to filter the updates to only show changes from certain users.

  5. Check the Enable checkbox.

  6. Consider renaming this integration with your Microsoft Teams channel name for easy future reference. Something like, "Microsoft Teams: #Aha! updates". You can do this by clicking the Microsoft Teams text in the heading of the Integrations page.

Use the integration

Once the integration has been set up, updates from Aha! will begin flowing into the Microsoft Teams channel that you chose during setup. Updates will come through to Microsoft Teams about five minutes after updates in Aha! are made. In Microsoft Teams, click View in Aha! to navigate directly to the Aha! record.

Any text that is added to Aha! records will come through as bolded text and any text that was removed will come through with strikethrough text.
