You can attach data requests to your reports in Standuply. A data request captures information from a third-party service the team uses and attaches that data to an existing Standuply report inside Slack.
You choose a third-party service:
- Google Analytics
and connect it to Standuply.
Then you select a type of chart you need and attach it to a report in Standuply (each report has its timing and delivery settings).
You configure a request once, then anytime attach it to an existing standup report or a new report. You can run a standup report with your teammates plus a data request or just have a separate report with the data request only.
You can also create a request for other tools you use, like MySQL, MongoDB, etc via the Custom request option.
The custom request is the endpoint Standuply will use to pull the data and post it to Slack.
To do so, you need to prepare the data in the required format on your side and specify the URL from which Standuply should collect the data. This way you can automatically share important metrics with the team in Slack.
You can even make your own integration, for example with Jira, to send the data you need via Standuply directly to Slack. But if you wait a bit, you might have similar integrations out of the box, made by our team.
