With the Microsoft Teams integration, updates from your projects can be posted to Microsoft Teams channels. In addition, you can create tasks, comments, and times in awork from within Microsoft Teams.

Set up the integration for Microsoft Teams

To set up the integration, go to the channel in Microsoft Teams that you want to connect to awork. From there, go to Options and select Connectors.

Now search for the awork app in the top right corner and install the Connector. If the Login window to awork does not open automatically, click on "Options" in your Teams channel, then click on "Connectors" and "Configure" next to the awork Connector.

Make sure to select the notifications you wish to be posted to your Teams channel.

How to do it in the old Microsoft Teams Version:

Integrate awork as a website in Microsoft Teams

To display awork as a website in the Teams channel, simply click on the plus button in the tab bar. A pop-up will open where you can search for the website. Click on the website icon and enter a title for the tab in the pop-up that appears. Copy the link to the awork project from your browser and paste it into the URL line in the pop-up. After saving, log in to awork from the tab. awork is now available as a tab in the Teams channel.

Create tasks/time tracking from Microsoft Teams

With the integration, you can also work directly with awork within Microsoft Teams. You can use the following commands :

  • @awork add [task] - creates a new task in awork project

  • @awork comment [task]:[text] - Creates a comment to the entered task

  • @awork start [task/project] - Start time tracking on a task/project

  • @awork stop - Stop running time tracking

  • @awork help - Shows you all options for the awork Connectors

So, for example, just type @awork add Create design for logo in Teams, and the task Create design for logo will be created in the linked project, or as a private task if no project is linked.
