Instant communication at work is crucial for getting things done. Slack is a great place to discuss ideas, make plans and set goals – but, how can you make sure that important action items don’t get left behind?

If you use slack like we do, in most conversations action items arise but there’s no simple way to capture them. Thanks to our integration with Slack (via Zapier) you can now easily capture tasks and action items with a single tap. Starting today, every time you star an important message on Slack, a new task will be created on, with a direct link into the original message in the task notes.
