From ComputerWorld: Slack has announced the launch of its new Slack Canvas tool, a brand new digital surface that allows teams to capture and store information directly inside their workspace.
The announcement was made at this year’s Dreamforce conference in San Francisco, 14 months after Salesforce announced it had completed its $27.7 billion acquisition of the messaging platform.
Research undertaken by the company shows that lots of its customers are split between several different modes of work, with about 34% of knowledge workers spending at least part of their week back in the office, according to Olivia Grace, senior director of product at Slack.
Grace said that as a result, Slack is increasingly hearing customers ask how they can continue to collaborate effectively while navigating all these different ways of working.
“At Slack, our answer is that we want to help customers by providing them with a digital HQ,” Grace said. “We want to make what was hard in the office better. We want to bring things we love from the office, and we want to create new things which are unique to the digital headquarters.”
