Slack platform and its new features

13 December 2021

Salesforce presented the innovative possibilities of integrating the Slack teamwork platform software with industry solutions and its products. When in 2020 various companies, enterprises and some workplaces began to massively switch to remote work, most simply moved office tasks to the virtual space. Today, it is almost certain that many of these jobs will never return to their former form.

Currently, 9 out of 10 assume that they will stay with the hybrid model, which is why there is a need to develop new tools and methods of work such as meetings, company mail or simply gathering outside work in the digital world. In August this year, new possibilities of integrating Slack and Salesforce software took place, introducing the option of linking their products such as Commerce, Platform, Quip, as well as with their industry clouds or products. There are new features of the Slack platform that will provide customers with tools dedicated to operating in digital technologies.

Clips is a novelty used to create and share audio, video and screen recordings in the form of any channel on the Slack platform, which definitely facilitates the work in a flexible way and in accordance with your own graphics. GovSlack, on the other hand, is a Slack software option that is responsible for the most stringent requirements of e.g. government agencies in terms of regulations and in the area of ​​state security (USA).

Many improvements in the Slack Connect service make the creation and management of connections much easier than before, even from the point of view of partners and customers who have not used platforms such as Slack before. All of these enhancements enable secure collaboration across internal and external teams, streamlining a workflow that is based on CRM data.
