Custom Slack action/s for Aha!

Slack recently launched 'actions' that allow users to do things with messages, similar to built-in actions like adding reactions or message sharing.

These custom actions provide a simple and visual way for people to interact with an app from Slack.

The following apps are currently supported in Slack;

  • Asana
  • Jira
  • Pocket
  • Teamline (was busybot)
  • To-do
  • Guru

It would be great if Aha! could be added as a supported app with actions such as:

  • Create a feature (using a message in Slack)
  • Add a comment to a feature (using a message in Slack)

Actions are a more user-friendly approach to an integration than slash-commands.

  • Attach files

    Could you also add the ability to assign a ToDo when adding from Slack?

    So I see that AHA added record creation (, but would love to see the ability to add comments to records so that Slack conversations so that you can capture a comment or concern of a feature directly onto aha.

    So I guess this is half closed. Please bring comments to records in AHA from Slack and we have the ultimate Dev to PLM tool for communication and collab


Create ideas from Slack threads

Often, a user will suggest a feature in Slack and we will discuss it in a thread. After a back and forth we sharpen the request and I would love to be able to create an idea from a slack thread.
