Hello GitHub, We’re Quire

New integrations report #1

For some of you, it is difficult enough to keep everyone up to date with the tasks at hand. It is even more so when they involve codes. Lots of codes.

But not to worry, Quire has got it covered. With the integration with GitHub, it is easier to stay on top of your team members’ code changes and to refer and trace back between tasks and codes.

How do I integrate with GitHub?

1. Go to Project options (that looks like a wheel) in the main panel

2. Click on “Integrate Github”

3. Click on “Get Authentication”

4. Select one or more repositories you want to connect to and click on Save

5. You can simply click on “Continue to my project.”

Once you are back to your project, the integration is done!

What can I do with GitHub integration?

You can reference and complete a task or more via commit message.

To reference a task:

First, choose a task.

Find the ID for this task in the url bar.

You enter a # and the task ID in the commit message.

For example:

Write #634.

When you make a reference, we will add a comment to the task like this:

Note that whenever we add a comment to Quire, we will also add one to GitHub:

Now, you can easily refer to the task from GitHub to Quire, and trace its codes from Quire to GitHub.

You can also add a message at the end of your commit.

For example:

Edit #634 added more description.

Then, it will appear like this in the task’s comment:

To reference multiple tasks:

Follow the same steps for referencing a task, and simply add “and” in your commit message.

For example:

Edit #634, #635 and #636 paraphrased a few sentences.

It will look like this in all three tasks:

To complete a task:

Again, first select a task.

Find the task ID in the url bar.

Use any of the keywords below followed by a # and the task ID in your commit message.

For example:

Close #634 article finalized.

Keywords:

Complete/Completes/Completed
Close/Closes/Closed
Fix/Fixes/Fixed
Resolve/Resolves/Resolved

When you complete a task, we will add a comment to the task like this:

And we will mark the task as complete:

To complete multiple tasks:

Follow the same steps for closing a task, and add “and” in your commit message.

For example:

Close #635 and #636 articles finalized.

When you complete these two tasks, we will add the same comment to both tasks:

And we will mark both tasks as complete:

I hope you will enjoy our very first integration with GitHub and that it will help you keep everyone in the loop.

Goodbye for now!
