Turn messages into tasks with Workast

What’s it handy for?

Use this workflow to quickly turn messages into items on your to-do list in Workast. Using an emoji reaction, simply send them to a single place for later review, so you can stay focused and keep pace with your work happening in Slack. 

A few uses for this workflow:

  • HR: Turn employee requests into tasks
  • Product: Turn feedback messages into tasks
  • IT: Turn support questions into tasks

When someone reacts to a message with your workflow’s emoji, a task will automatically be created in Workast. This way, you can later review all tasks at a later time in one place. 

To get started:

  1. Install the Workast app for Slack
  2. Download the example
  3. Navigate to Workflow Builder and select “Import”
  4. Once imported, edit the workflow to make sense for your team
  5. Publish and let everyone know about your masterpiece

See it in action:

  1. Install the Workast app for Slack
  2. Import the template and give your workflow a name
  3. Select a channel and emoji trigger for your workflow
  4. Customize the “Create a task” step to map Slack message variables to your Workast task details
  5. Publish and tell your teammates how to use your workflow’s emoji, so they can automatically create their to-do list in Workast without leaving Slack
