Microsoft Loop Adds GitHub, Jira, and Trello for Enhanced Collaboration

Microsoft's Loop app now integrates with GitHub, Jira, and Trello. This lets developers and project managers manage tasks directly in Loop.

-

has announced new integrations for its Loop app with , Jira, and Trello, aimed at improving workflow efficiency for developers and project managers. These updates allow work and school account users to manage projects and track issues directly within the Loop interface, enhancing productivity and collaboration.

The integration with GitHub enables users to embed GitHub issues and pull requests into Loop pages. By using a simple “/” command, users can access a menu to select GitHub and follow in-app instructions to start integrating. This feature allows users to view and modify GitHub milestones, change assignees, or update PR reviewers directly from Loop. However, utilizing these GitHub features requires user permissions for the respective GitHub repository.

Enhancing Project Management with Jira and Trello

Loop's integration with Jira facilitates the viewing and managing of Jira issues. Users can alter the status, due date, or assignee of a Jira issue from within Loop, although this functionality is currently limited to Jira Cloud projects, excluding Jira Server and Jira Data Center.

The Trello integration operates on the same principle, allowing users to manage Trello cards by dragging and dropping them across swim lanes, adjusting members, and setting due dates. Additionally, users can access Trello's detailed card view directly from Loop.

 became widely available in November. Initially introduced at Ignite 2021, Loop has now launched for Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Business Standard, and Business Premium users. Compatible across web, iOS, and  platforms, the app is also accessible to Microsoft 365 consumer customers via mobile apps. While the availability of these features for Microsoft 365 personal subscribers has not been specified, the introduction of these integrations represents an enhancement in Microsoft's suite of productivity software.
