Build together in Retool with Cord comments and annotations

How to collaborate in Retool with Cord

Building apps – internal tools or otherwise – is collaborative. But actually working together with your teammates when code is involved is easier said than done. Taking screenshots, adding annotations, sending a flurry of Slack messages, and then adding Jira tickets is nobody’s idea of a good workflow.

In this post, we’ll walk through how to use Retool (a fast way of building internal tools used by DoorDash, Warner Bros, Peloton and more) with Cord. Cord lets you add comments, annotations, and guides directly in your favorite apps – so you can talk with your team in the apps you’re working in. Cord also integrates with Slack and project management tools (Jira, Asana, Monday, etc.) so you can create and manage tickets without leaving your app.
