Salesforce Announced New Low-code Developers Tools to Build Slack App

Addition of new features to the Slack App

  1. Collaborations are now easier since they can happen directly on chats and channels with sharing of Salesforce data and metadata in real-time.
  2. Salesforce is building multiple Slack apps as beta versions nailing on operation areas like target service, sales, and marketing areas
  3. So now automation and access to key functions are simplified because of these beta apps. That means the Sales Teams and Support Teams can directly work on cases and new leads as soon as they get them on their database since they can get everything on their Slack Channels and won’t have to run marathons from communication apps to data portals. Thus huge savings on functional time and thus faster results.
  4. Salesforce Platform for Slack contains tools for the developers as well. Adding to the automation options of Salesforce Platform this toolkit provides Apex and Flow for Slack as well. The Apex tool will enable a developer to develop customized apps by creating an amalgamation of Slack and Salesforce Data.
  5. The Flow tool of the toolkit will help developers build automation by creating Slack-first workflows with complete presence and support for the data and actions infused.
  6. It is to the invention of Flow in Slack that manual tasks like creating Slack Channels and updating accounts etc.; done over Slack will be now fully automated and that too using low-code tools. This will even result in reusing some automation for further jobs thus reducing development time in the future.
  7. With the help of Apex SDK for Slack developers will be able to write code and integrate with Apex and generate Block Kit; a clean and consistent UI Framework for Slack apps. Thus easing out the work of developers as they won’t have to learn something complex since they’ll work on their familiar language; Apex.
