Using Transposit

Your Transposit environment has been set up and you've logged into Transposit for the first time. Now you're wondering what to do next!

Let's get familiar with Transposit and start using its features to simplify and streamline your processes. We'll explore the activity feed, get started with runbooks, and integrate our processes with Slack.

Activities#

After logging into Transposit, you will be dropped into Activities. Here you can see a list of all recent activities done by members of your team. You can also click into activity types to see activities by type, such as Incidents, Requests, Changes, and Jobs.

Activity Overview and Timeline#

Click into one of the activities to see the Overview and Timeline.

Overview#

The Overview shows you any updates a team member has made to that activity during the course of its progress, as well as important information about that activity, such as the Activity Type, Slack Channel, Relevant Links, Due Date, Environment, Status, Labels, and more.

Click on the Slack Channel link to be taken to the corresponding Slack channel. All activity you see in Slack will also be in the Timeline.

Timelines#

The Timeline shows every action by a human or machine in the course of that activity.

On the right, you will also see the runbooks that were used during the activity. When an activity is still open, users can take action in a runbook, or search for another runbook and run it.

Runbooks#

Click on Runbooks in the top navigation.

Here you see all the runbooks available to your Transposit team. On the left you will see all the recent "runs", which are runbooks that have been executed.

Slack Integration#

Depending on how your Transposit environment has been set up, a new Slack channel can automatically be created once an activity is created. In the Slack channel, you can find the current Runbook run or browse and run other runbooks after typing the /transposit command.

"Runbook runs" will show you the current runbooks that are being used for this activity. "Browse runbooks" will allow you to search for another runbook to run.
