Business scenario:

A team involved in building a website is using Cliq to keep each other updated about the developments and dependencies in the project.


The team finds it difficult to switch between multiple tools to get insight and keep up with constant updates and the requirements of their team members.

How can the team overcome this challenge?

It is a tedious task to switch between tools, an integrated application having all the tools in one place will make it easier for the team to work asynchronously and to have all the updates and requirements under one roof.


  • Install the GitLab extension for Cliq.
  • Connect to your projects via the GitLab Bot.
  • Map the GitLab Bot to a Cliq channel. 
  • View updates and issues right from Cliq.
  • Easily disconnect from a project once it's done/completed.
