Have you ever wanted to be automatically notified in Slack of changes made to cards? Have you ever wondered if there’s a way to share the workitem information with required people at once? With the Slack plugin, now you can do just that.

A great way to share project-related workitem information or notify notifications is by adding the Slack plugin to Nimble and using the two robust platforms side by side seamlessly. You will be able to perform some quick actions from Slack for a workitem:

  • Add Tags
  • Move Card
  • Add Comments
  • Add Due Dates

For example, you can automate a few actions in the product, such as the workitem being added every time selected users/channels receive a message/notification in Slack, and you can also move (quick action) the card to the next lane in Slack.


In the left navigation panel, expand the Workspace menu and select My Workspace. Hover over the My Workspace breadcrumb at the top, expand the Setup module, and select Integrations.

Slack Quick Actions to Nimble

Move Card

Execution Board is used to visualize and track the progress of work on a project, and cards represent individual tasks. By moving cards on the board, you can quickly and easily track the status of work and see how it is progressing. Slack allows you to quickly move the cards on the board in the project and update the board to reflect the current status of work.

The steps in the video below show how to move the Nimble cards on Slack. Similarly, you can also add tags and set due dates.
