Issue Rooms are heads-down spaces (Slack channels) where your team can collaborate on issues. Each comment in the Issue Room is synced to the issue as a comment, and vice versa.
When your issue is closed, we archive your Issue Room.
You can create an Issue Room on any issue by clicking on the
Create Issue Room 🛋 button on the issue message.
If your issue message is collapsed, you can see this button on the issue detail modal.
Fabric will create the Issue Room, attach it to the bottom of the issue message, and add a link to the top of the issue body in GitHub.
You can tell Fabric to always create an Issue Room when a new issue is created, either from Slack or GitHub.
You can tell Fabric to always create an Issue Room when a new issue is created at a template-level.
To invite more team members to your Issue Room, click
Invite team members.
All messages in the Issue Room back up to the issue as comments, even threads. Messages can include files or images, which also get included in the comment.
When you send a threaded message in an Issue Room, it will look like a classic reply in GitHub. The parent message will be quotes, and your reply will show below.
When you send an image in a message in an Issue Room, that will also get added to the comment. You can even add multiple images.
If someone added a comment from GitHub, it gets sent to the Issue Room.
When your issue is closed, we automatically archive your Issue Room for you.
The great thing about Issue Rooms is that it gives you space for collaboration.
Instead of sending messages and distracting your team in
#engineering, send them in the related Issue Room. Messages get backed up to the issue and anyone who is really interested can preview and join the channel.
Team members may enter a leave an Issue Room multiple times throughout its existence.
We encourage this because it helps everyone stay in control of what channels they're in. And some team members may only have input in one phase of the issue. Invite design in early, and QA in later.
When you turn on your Team setting to always create Issue Rooms for every issue, Fabric starts to feel magical.
Knowing you have a space to discuss every issue will reduce distractions and let your team collaborate more frequently.
