The data from your community powers your Orbit experience. New messages in Slack, questions in Discourse, conversations on Discord, issues raised on GitHub, there are so many places where your community lives. Orbit offers many Built-in Integrations that can be set up directly from within the Orbit app. Each integration offers more context and the potential for more comprehensive reporting and analysis.
What about the places your community operates on that are not yet incorporated as built-in integrations or have Zapier integrations? Community integrations can bridge that divide for you in your Orbit workspace.
In this Twitch stream, the Orbit Developer Relations team will show you how we build community integrations, and how you can get started in both using and building them.
