What are WorkerB Personal Alerts and Commands?
WorkerB Personal Alerts allow you to receive direct alerts in Slack when your PRs are assigned, changed, received a comment (GitLab only), or have been approved. Setting up Personal Alerts also grants you access to Personal Commands, which allow you to use a variety of slash commands to instantly pull a list of your current PRs, updates, reviews, and more without leaving Slack!
How do I set WorkerB Personal Alerts and Commands?
To use WorkerB Personal Alerts and Commands, your organization's LinearB admin must have already connected LinearB to Slack by setting up WorkerB Team Alerts.
Once LinearB is connected to Slack at the organization level, it's time to connect your individual Slack handle to LinearB. To do so, simply use one of our LinearB Slack commands. Try typing
/lb pref to yourself in a DM. If you're not already connected, you'll receive a reply that looks like this:
Clicking on the Let's do it! button will send you to LinearB and prompt you to authenticate through your Git account.
After authenticating with your Git provider, LinearB will connect your Git account to your personal Slack handle and you can see what all the buzz is about! 🐝
What alerts will I receive?
You will automatically start to receive alerts in Slack for the following updates to your pull requests:
