To connect Slack with Gryffin, follow these steps:
Go to the Slack app directory, and search for “Gryffin”, or simply follow this link: https://gryffinmediatest.slack.com/apps/AA19APRS6-gryffin-beta
In the next screen, click “Authorize”
Make sure you have selected the Slack company where you wish to install Gryffin (on the top right).
Next, you’ll be taken to this screen:
Click on Admin > API Connections and you’ll see that Slack is Connected.
That’s it! You’ve now connected Slack and Gryffin.
Once you have installed Gryffin on Slack, you can create new tasks from within Slack.
How to Create Gryffin Tasks on Slack
You’ll have to give Slack a command for new tasks to be created. From within Slack, type in:
You’ll be asked to select a company (in case you’re a mult-company user).
Once you select a company, you’ll see a pop up to Create New Task.
From here you can give your task a Title, Due Date, Assigned To, and Task Information, and click on Create.
Once you enter in all of the information and click on Create, you’ll see the task within Slack, with a link to the task in Gryffin.
If you click on the link to the task, you’ll see the task pop up open in Gryffin.
From here, you can click on “Edit” if you wish to edit it, add a comment, or simply close the task pop up to see your Task Manager.
How to Connect a Task Created in Slack to a project
If you prefer for all of your tasks to live inside projects, you can still connect your tasks with your projects from within Slack.
From slack, type in:
/gryffin task project URL
The project URL should be the actual link of the Gryffin project where you want the task to be added.
