Slack Integration

Martin Večeřa

Integrate Slack with Lumeer to get your project data directly into your Slack channel. All the integrations help you to streamline your workflows and communication.

What is Slack?

Slack is a cloud-based communication tool for teams to stay organized and collaborate on projects. Companies can create workspaces that have channels within them in order to separate different departments or projects. Team members can belong to all channels or only selected channels. They can send messages, share files and have (video) calls within a channel or between two individual members.

How Does Slack Work with Lumeer?

Communication is key in any company. By combining Slack and Lumeer with Zapier, companies can streamline their communication and project management. Everyone is automatically notified about any changes with their tasks, projects, clients etc. See all the possible Zapier integrations between Slack and Lumeer.

What Can You Do with Slack and Lumeer?

You can create automated processes that save you time and eliminate the need to manually enter data. For example:

  • Post new tasks created in Lumeer to a Slack channel
  • Change assignees via a message in Slack
  • Load task details when someone mentions its ID in a Slack channel
  • Create a new task from a message in Slack
  • Create a new client in Lumeer in response to a newly created channel in Slack
  • Invite a new user to Slack in response to a new client added to Lumeer

Sample Slack Integration

Let’s implement the scenario to load task details to Slack upon mentioning the task ID.

First, start with a Slack trigger – When a new public message is posted anywhere in Slack.

integrate Slack with Lumeer

Only continue, if the message contains task ID prefix LMR-.

see if a task ID was mentioned

Extract the task ID via regular expression.

extract task ID pattern

Only continue if the pattern was found – if real ID was mentioned.

only continue if the task ID matches a pattern

Use the pattern to lookup the task in Lumeer.

find the task in Lumeer
find criteria

Send the task details back to the original Slack channel.

send the meesage back to Slack

You should now be able to create quite a complex Slack integration to pull task details from Lumeer.
