The new integration leverages Slack’s built-in threading, making it easier for developers to discuss code by enabling true cross-platform collaboration.
When you share a codemark or feedback request to Slack, any replies from CodeStream will get added to the thread on Slack. Even better, teammates can reply from Slack just as they would reply to any other message. Just click “Reply in thread” and then add a reply.
The most important thing about this new model is that when replies are added, from either CodeStream or Slack, normal Slack notification mechanisms apply. Visibility of replies is what enables discussion.
Imagine a discussion where you’re participating from CodeStream, in your IDE, and another teammate is participating by replying to email notifications, and yet more teammates are participating from Slack. CodeStream makes discussing code incredibly easy by allowing people to participate from wherever they happen to be… whether it’s their IDE, email client or Slack.
Even code reviews can now happen across platforms. As your teammate adds comments to that feedback request you created for your work-in-progress, they render nicely in the feedback request’s Slack thread and you can respond right there.
To get started with this new Slack integration you’ll need to reconnect to Slack, either as part of creating your next codemark/feedback request or by going to the Integrations page under the username menu.
Discussing code has never been easier!
