If your team collaborates on code using GitHub, you’re probably used to dealing with email, lots of email. Email messages probably fly back and forth across your team all day with updates, pull requests, code review, issues, bug fixes, commits, and on and on. But with your GitHub Glip integration, you’ll be able to view and respond to any of those GitHub events right from your Glip communication stream.
In other words, you can stay on top of your team’s latest source code updates, all without leaving your Glip workspace. And no more jumping in and out of email all day.
This means you and your team:
No more digging through email messages looking for GitHub requests and updates because all of those communications will be in your Glip workspace.
Reduce email clutter
Avoid the mountain of GitHub email update. Use Glip to keep yourself from missing important messages.
Keep better records
Keep your GitHub code management progress in your Glip workspace online, as opposed to spreading it across a zillion email messages.
Once you’ve integrated your GitHub account with your Glip workspace (which we’ll show you how to do below), you can fully customize which events you and your team will receive and how.
Receive real-time notifications for commits, pull requests (opened and closed), issues (opened and closed), issue comments, commit comments, etc.
Receive notifications directly or choose to have them automatically posted to a Glip team or project you select.
Receive notifications on any or all devices you choose—computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.
If you already have a GitHub account, the process is easy and will take just a minute.
Click on the Integrations heading on the left pane of your Glip dashboard.
That will bring up the Available Integrations page in your dashboard’s center pane, and from there you can click on GitHub.
You can also click on the gear settings icon next to any of your People or Teams, which will bring up a drop-down menu. From there, you can click Add Integration.
The app will then ask you to Add GitHub Integration to an existing conversation in your Glip workspace or to create a new team to pull in your GitHub activity.
Here you’ll be asked to sign in to your GitHub account.
Once your Glip and GitHub accounts have been properly introduced, you’ll have the chance to specify which types of GitHub activity you want to add to your Glip communication streams. Choose the GitHub events and messages you want to pull into Glip and which conversations and teams to send them to.
Now you can see, share, and respond to your GitHub updates right in Glip, and take a break from constantly checking your email.
And the best part?
GitHub integration is free to all Glip users.
