Within Teamwork Projects, the Slack integration allows you to receive and interact with Projects notifications in Slack when certain actions are performed in your projects.

An example would be if a user notifies you in a comment in a project, you will receive a notification in a designated Slack channel, and can respond to it from there.

Note: To use the integration, it must first be enabled in site settings by a site administrator before you can enable it in your personal integrations.

Once the integration has been set up, and the private Slack channel is created, you can begin to use the integration.

You will receive Projects notifications to the private Slack channel for anything relevant to you:

  • If a user creates a message in a project and selects you to be notified
  • If someone @mentions you anywhere in a comment or message in Projects
  • When other users make changes to tasks you are following
Any time one of the actions above occurs, a notification will be posted to the private channel in Slack detailing what the notification is about, and who is responsible:


Task update / new task notifications will include:

  • Who updated or added the task
  • Name of the task
  • Links to the task, associated task list and project
  • Option to complete the task
Message notifications will include:

  • Who posted the message
  • Message content
  • Links to the message and associated project
  • Option to reply to the message
Comment notifications will include:

  • Who posted the comment
  • Comment content
  • Links to the the associated task and project

Actioning notifications


Whenever you receive a Projects notification in the Slack channel, you can perform different actions via the options (three dots) button to the right of the message.
