Use Case Example Of Kovair Slack Integration

Slack unifies your Projects team’s communication, thereby enhancing your project data flow. All the tools that you need are seamlessly integrated into a single Omnibus platform. To understand how Kovair Slack integration works, let us consider an integration scenario between Kovair Defect Management and Slack:

Example Of Kovair Slack Integration
  1. A consultant posts a Requirement in Kovair. The Requirement is added to Slack in the Requirement channel. The integration enables users to add comments against the Requirement, thereby enabling them to exchange feedbacks and information. Thus, further communication on the requirement can be done with the consultant and the Product Owner/ Manager through Omnibus Slack integration.
  2. Once the Requirement is finalized, the Product Owner can invite a Developer for the Job.
  3. All communication related to the requirement development can be done keeping the Developer and the Product Owner / Manager in loop through Omnibus Slack integration.
  4. Next, the Manage / Owner can invite the testing team to test it. Again, all the communication between the testing team and the manager can happen using the Omnibus integration.
