How the template works

The template combines the power of one Zapier Table and one Zap to create a seamless project management experience. The Table allows you to manage major tasks, complete with category, owner, start and end dates, and notes, giving you a comprehensive overview of your project's progress.

With the click of a button within the Table, the Zap will automatically send your team a Slack update for any task that includes all the record’s details, keeping everyone informed and on schedule. And, thanks to Zapier's integration capabilities, you can easily connect this template with other tools and apps to further enhance your project plan.

You can configure your Slack step but then simply skip the tests for both the trigger and last action. Then hit publish on the Zap and navigate back to the Table to start using your project plan template.
