Sometimes stopping to let others know what you're doing can be a bit like stopping a train, killing your momentum. Why not apply this Visual Studio Online Slack integration to the problem, creating a perfectly transparent, completely automated system without taking any of your precious time? Set up this Zap and from then on, every time a work item is updated on Visual Studio Online a message will be sent on Slack with the information of your choice. No more unnecessary slowdowns!

How It Works

  1. A Visual Studio Online work item is updated
