Planview LeankitNew - Add Card

Manage projects easily and respond to messages quickly with the Slack to LeanKit automation. Once set up, when you receive a new message in Slack, Zapier will create a new card in LeanKit. This automation helps your team collaborate and focus on your projects even while you're chatting in Slack.

Note: You might want to use a specific Slack channel to create tasks so you don't get a task created from everyone's conversations.

How It Works

  1. Receive a new message in Slack
  2. Zapier creates a new card in LeanKit
