When it comes to collaboration, it’s key that every member of your team gets the full picture. This is especially true when it comes to building your software from scratch – manually diagnosing, fixing and optimizing the performance of your code can be made even more challenging by lack of sight over the full project. 

We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Sentry, a tool that’s making the mammoth task of optimizing code collaboratively more attainable! This new integration allows you to link issues tracked in Sentry to new or existing tasks in Teamwork, ready to be worked on by the team.

Sentry’s approach to improving workplace efficiency makes it a welcome addition to Teamwork’s range of integrations and tools. Sentry is an application that puts time and resources back into the hands of developers. This efficient monitoring platform helps coders maintain full sight of the hiccups and kinks that require their attention, saving time and enabling teams to work at their optimal levels.

Historically, sifting through hours of work looking for bugs that need to be fixed sets teams back by a significant amount of time, having a knock-on effect on other areas of the same project, as well as cost and deadlines. In areas like digital marketing, IT services and product development, these additional hours can be expensive and potentially affect final deliverables.

Sentry’s platform automates this task altogether, allowing developers to spend more time on creating high-quality outputs in less time. Using the new integration, Sentry feeds this information back to teams through Teamwork, giving full visibility of the project to those involved in the project

Connecting your Sentry and Teamwork accounts opens a number of doors:

  1. It’s the perfect cross between collaboration and code development. Fixing issues that come up while working on your code can be tough enough. Reporting back to your teams makes each issue take up more time, and therefore, incur more cost. Sentry and Teamwork integration takes care of both aspects of the task.

  2. It offers you the choice to escalate each issue to your team. This gives developers the opportunity to assess and communicate these fixes with ease by adding them onto existing tasks in Teamwork, or creating a new task. By using Teamwork in conjunction with Sentry, developers can also delegate these tasks to other members of their team.

  3. Integrating both tools means every detail flagged by Sentry is communicated through your task on Teamwork, further streamlining communication within your team.

Attention to detail and complete visibility are both essential to achieving high-quality outputs. Sentry works as a safety net that catches issues that may have slipped through the cracks when testing codes manually. But it also goes one step further to flag the reasons an issue may have come up, taking the guesswork out of solving the problem.

These features, coupled with Teamwork’s functionality means teams can now seamlessly work through these bugs in the most efficient way possible, never letting an issue go unchecked and keeping team members in the loop to ensure collaborating with coworkers is made as seamless as possible.
