By integrating DeployGate with a commonly used chat service, an entire team can share changes that occur during an app's development.By integrating DeployGate with a commonly used chat service, an entire team can share changes that occur during an app's development.

Purpose of Chat Integration

Oftentimes, apps get released with bugs that should have been caught by the development team. Avoid missteps such as "I didn't realize that additional edits were made" and "I thought that the bugs weren't universal, so I didn't notify anyone" that can lead to an app's demise.

Steps can be taken to prevent issues from occurring:

  • Allow testers to be made aware of updates to apps under development
  • Inform developers of app issues immediately
  • Ease communications by using a common platform that all team members view regularly

For example, a message like this on Slack can allow all team members to be notified of an issue and take steps to correct the problem.
