Using /tara Command

Creating a Task

To create a task from within Slack you can use the command:

Convert Slack Message to Task

You can also create a new task from Slack by converting a Slack message into a task.

  1. Hover over the message you want to convert

  2. Click on More Actions on the right

  3. Select Create task from message

A modal will pop up, and the content of your message will be saved as the task description.

Viewing a Requirement or Task

To see snippets of a requirement or a task, simply paste the URL in an app DM or channel to unfurl the link. You will be able to see important task information such as title, description, status, effort, and assignee.

Editing a Task

As Tara unfurls links to your tasks, all tasks will become actionable from within Slack.

To edit, paste the task URL into Slack and click on the Edit button at the bottom of the preview to update the assignee, effort level, task status, and more.
