Aha! Roadmaps | Integrate with Slack

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 Slack for real-time collaboration across the company.

Slack conversations are quick and immediate, but to be useful, they need strategic context. When inspiration strikes in the middle of a Slack thread, it helps to be able to create work items from Slack without copying everything over to Aha! Roadmaps.

Aha! Roadmaps offers two separate one-way integrations with Slack. You can enable either one — or both — depending on your needs:

  • Create an Aha! Roadmaps activity stream in Slack to funnel your roadmapping updates into one Slack channel.

  • Create Aha! Roadmaps records directly from Slack with Slack slash commands.

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

Send data from Aha! Roadmaps to Slack

Automatically send your Aha! Roadmaps activity from Aha! Roadmaps to the Slack channel(s) of your choice. In Slack, your team will now see the same information that you see in your own activity stream in Aha! Roadmaps, including integration activity.

By customizing which strategy, release, idea and feature updates you stream to Slack, everyone in the channel can focus on what matters most. Example streams could include tracking product launches on releases, or tracking team comments on key features and initiatives.
