Within Teamwork, you can add items to your projects using the Slack integration.



These actions can be performed on messages sent within Slack, and also on Teamwork notifications received in Slack.

When you hover over a message or notification, you will see a menu to the right. Click the options (three dots) button to see further options for the message.

You will see the 3 most recently used actions in the options menu. Click More message shortcuts for further options.

Adding comments


You can add comments to the project items you receive notifications in your private Slack channel for.

When you receive a notification about a comment you are notified on or @mentioned in, you can use the options (three dots) button to the right of the notification to add a reply comment.

If you receive task-related notifications (updates or new tasks), you can use the Add Comment action to add a comment directly to the task.

Note: Adding comments can only be done on Teamwork notifications, not original Slack messages.
