Add a message to a pull request

What’s it handy for?

Sometimes the best ideas for improvements come from conversations in Slack. Instead of copying/pasting important context into your code repository, your team can add any Slack message to a pull request, saving time because the important information you need is always available, no matter which tool you’re using.

Adding messages to pull requests is great for:

  • Giving developers more context for code changes
  • Bubbling up the best ideas and enhancements to the dev team
  • Saving time spent jumping between apps by doing it in Slack

Before you get started

Connect your code repository tools like GitHub or Bitbucket Cloud with Slack.
