Salesforce Releases New Low-Code Slack Tools for developers!


Salesforce and Slack introduced the Salesforce Platform for Slack, a new toolkit that empowers developers to build custom Slack apps that pull key functionalities like actions, automations, and business insights directly from Salesforce into Slack. The Salesforce Platform for Slack toolkit enables developers to easily build Slack apps that connect people across the business, producing powerful digital HQs that empower employees to thrive in a work-from-anywhere world.

Developers are tasked with bigger projects and tighter timelines, 93% of organizations are having difficulties retaining skilled developers, while 76% say the mental strain experienced by developers to learn new software architectures directly contributes to lower productivity.

Salesforce Platform for Slack, a key component of Salesforce’s newly expanded automation capabilities, empowers the more than 11 million Salesforce developers to build time-saving Slack apps natively on Salesforce Platform across the entirety of the Customer 360 portfolio using familiar tools and coding languages.

New features bring Salesforce automation to any Slack conversation

Turn manual tasks like creating Slack channels to collaborate with colleagues and partners or sending account status updates to teams into fully automated processes using low-code tools.

Build multi-step, guided automations in Salesforce that can be reused within Slack, all with just clicks.

Empowering developers with Flow in Slack enables organizations to not only collaborate efficiently on complex processes across teams, but also insert automations into larger business process orchestrations.
