Webhooks, Integration & Pricing Support

Works the same on all devices and browsers

Whatever your preferred device, browser, or platform is, Workstreams functions in a way that’s consistent with your expectations. It works seamlessly with software platforms like Slack and Microsoft Teams to ensure the best possible user experience. To be even more effective, we also make it easy to sync your tasks with Google and Outlook calendars. Importing tasks from Trello is also an option.

We take the same approach with our webapp. It’s fully responsive, and it scales to whatever size screen you prefer - presenting a consistent and unified view of the big picture. Whether on a desktop, tablet, or mobile phone, you’ll see what you need to see. Most important of all, you’re always in sync on all your devices because any changes in Slack or Microsoft Teams are immediately reflected everywhere else.

Webhook integrations

APIs are cool these days. But even cooler are Webhooks. Webhooks are super-simple APIs that enable you to quickly set up real-time connections between applications. In other words, they put the Web in the World Wide Web. Recognizing this, we built a feature into Workstreams that auto-generates a webhook URL for you with a single command.

A programmer, or even a semi-technical person, can then build this URL into their own app or program. For example, let’s say you have a program that generates a list of 100 positions that are open in your company for the Recruiting department. By programmatically using Webhooks, all 100 of these tasks can be created instantly in Workstreams.

  • On Slack

The process is so simple we don’t even really need numbers in our numbered list, but what the heck:

  1. Choose the channel in which you want to add tasks.
  2. Enter /workstreams webhook. Kaboom. Your webhook is created and the available parameters are listed (as explained below).
  3. Copy the URL into the program or app where you want to use it to auto-create tasks.

Using the webhook parameters

Here’s an example of a Webhook URL that is generated:


This is a bit technical so put your propeller cap on. These are the elements of the URL:

  • Q5CX2LS4NI - this funky number represents your unique webhook id and connects to the right channel, you can pretty much ignore it, just use it.
  • tasks.create - indicates the program call on our server
  • ? - indicates the start of the list of parameters (also known as name=value pairs)
  • title =Created+via+Webhook - the first parameter which defines the title of the task that is created by this URL.

The title parameter is the only required parameter but there are two more optional parameters that you can add to the URL:

  • description - lets you define a free-form text description of the task
  • status - lets you define a status for the description, with valid values being: planned, in progress and completed"

Shared channels

  • On Slack

Slack users with can count on shared channels as a way to collaborate with other companies or individuals outside your workspace on a shared taskboard. It’s also helpful simply for showing progress on key deliverables for a client, partner, or investor.

Are you loner? Then skip this section because this section is all about sharing with others. In all seriousness though, in our super-connected world you will undoubtedly want to collaborate with other companies and other people. No problem with Workstreams. This section covers how to work with other companies and the next section describes how to work with other people using guest channels.

The first method for sharing is ideal for working with other companies. It is called Shared channels and you can read all about it here:

No time to read? Here’s the gist of it: you need to be on either the Standard or Plus plan with Slack. If you are on the Free plan then you won’t be able to set up a Shared channel. Once you have a paid plan, you just have to be an Administrator of your Slack account, and you then work with the Administrator of the Slack account of the company you want to collaborate with. Your starting point is the down-arrow in the upper-left corner of the Slack window, which you probably use already to Edit your Status and Change your Profile. Once you are set up to use Shared Channels it shows up as an option in this menu.

Long story short: it requires a little bit of effort but it is totally worth it because all those partner companies you work with will be totally integrated into your Slack/Webstreams world. Slackers of the world unite!

Single channel guests

  • On Slack

Here’s how you set it up:

  1. Set up a channel for the individual from outside your company. That is, the guest.
  2. Enter: /workstreams login. A URL is generated for the guest. The web app opens with the standard login.
  3. Provide the URL to the guest that you want to join a channel.

The guest can then log in to a single channel and you are off to the races. And we have another convert to the world of Workstreams! Yes you’re doing some marketing work for us but they’ll love Workstreams too so they will thank you.

Connecting to your calendar

Connecting with your calendar is an ideal way to both better visualize your own due dates, and make it more clear to others when tasks assigned to you will be completed.
