Here's how the Shortcut integration works: you connect Shortcut to Status Hero with a webhook and an API token, and Status Hero will match up Shortcut activity to your team members based on their email address. Then, their Shortcut activity appears in the activity page and alongside their check-ins, automatically.

To set it up, first, visit API tokens section of your Shortcut settings. Create a new token for use with Status Hero, and copy it to your clipboard.

Then, visit the Integrations page in Team Settings in Status Hero. Under the Shortcut panel, paste your Shortcut API token and click "Save." Next,  copy the URL listed under "Webhook URL." 

Log in to Shortcut, open the "Integrations" menu item under your avatar on the bottom left, and select "Webhooks." 

Click "Add New Webhook", paste in the URL under the "Payload URL" field, and then click the next "Add New Webhook" button. That's it!  

To test it out, make a change in Shortcut and look for a new entry in the activity stream.

Troubleshooting

  • Look for updates in the activity stream first. The dashboard will sum up updates from the previous period. (The check-ins essentially say "here's what I did yesterday, and here is all of the Shortcut activity to go along with that.)

  • Check to make sure the email address that is being used in Shortcut matches the email address that is being used in Status Hero. If you or a team member is using a different email address in Shortcut, set the secondary email address in Status Hero to match the one used in Shortcut. 

  • Status Hero won't be able to record data retroactively. Make sure you generate some activity in Shortcut in order to test things out after you've set up the connection.

Note: The Shortcut integration is available in Pro and Corporate plans only. If you are subscribed to the Basic plan, you will need to upgrade to use the Shortcut integration.
