Keep coworkers up-to-date on the status of your tasks by linking GitHub and GitLab branches, pull/merge requests, and commits directly to tasks.
Once you link a task:
The task will be automatically marked as "In progress" (or any other custom status you set in Preferences)
The branch or pull/merge request will appear in the task activity history (note: a commit will only appear in the task activity history when it's merged on master and if it's not part of a pull request)
You can optionally cross-post pull/merge request comments to the linked task
💡Tip: Use "Closes T-ID" to mark a task as "Done" when the pull/merge request is merged.
