What is a Backlog Card?

If you’re a Typetalk user who also takes advantage of Nulab’s awesome project management app, Backlog, our latest feature is just for you. Backlog Cards give you easier access to your project management details without ever having to leave Typetalk.

Now, when you post a link to a Backlog issue or comment in Typetalk, your teammates can hover over that link to see a preview card with details including the:

  • Issue title & description
  • Project Key & link
  • Issue status
  • Info about the issue creator and date of creation


How can you use Backlog Cards?

Backlog Cards work for the following URL message formats:

  • Issue URLs

https://[space id].backlogtool.com/XXXX-0000

  • Comment URLs

https://[space id].backlogtool.com/XXXX-0000#comment-0000000000

  • Issue Keys


To view Backlog Cards in your Typetalk Topics, your Backlog Space Owner just needs to enable single sign-on from Nulab Accounts.

Enabling Nulab Account Sign-in for Backlog

To enable single sign-on using a Nulab Account, have your Backlog Space Administrator visit their Space Settings page, and select “Permit Nulab Account login.” 

Second, Backlog users must connect their Nulab Account on their personal Settings page. 

What is a Nulab Account?

Your Nulab Account is a simpler way to sign in to all of Nulab’s collaborative apps. With a Nulab Account, you can log in to Backlog, Cacoo, and Typetalk with a single account.

Bonus: It also enables you to sign into multiple Backlog Spaces with one account.
