Overview

Use airfocus' flexible Shortcut integration to prioritize your features and epics to build more effective roadmaps. Collaborate on your prioritization scoring to get the right stuff done. Our Shortcut integration keeps high-level strategy in sync with day-to-day development.

Push prioritized items into Shortcut for development and track their Shortcut status right from within airfocus.

Benefits of the Shortcut integration

  • Import Shortcut epics and stories (as items) into airfocus.

  • Push airfocus items into Shortcut either as Shortcut epics or as Shortcut stories (tasks, bugs, chores)

  • Create a flexible filtering and mapping workflow, e.g. map multiple Shortcut states to the same airfocus state

  • Keep fields synced between both systems including title, description, state/lane, label (Two-way sync)

Additional notes

  • When setting up a Shortcut integration in airfocus, you have to choose whether you want to import & sync Shortcut epics or Shortcut stories with airfocus.

  • You can only integrate one Shortcut workflow at a time. If you want to integrate
    a) multiple Shortcut workflows or
    b) both workflow (with its projects & stories) AND epics
    into the same airfocus workspace, please set up multiple integrations.

How to set up and configure the Shortcut integration

  • Navigate to the airfocus workspace you would like to set up the Shortcut integration with.
