We have made bunch of improvements to our GitHub app in Slack and Microsoft Teams.
We have now added support to add comments on your pull requests directly from the notification card in Slack.
2. Introduced threading for Pull request notifications
Notifications for any Pull request will be grouped under a parent card as replies. The parent card always shows the latest status of the PR along with other meta-data like title, description, reviewers, labels and checks. Threading gives context, improve collaboration and reduces noise in the channel.
3. Added support to turn on/off threading for Issues and Pull requests
If you do not want to use threading or need some flexibility, we are also rolling out an option to turn on/off threading for issues and pull requests.
