Release Update - February 13, 2020

New

Slack

We're super excited to bring you the new version of our Slack integration to bring you more flexibility and improve the way you and your team integrate and collaborate between ProdPad and Slack.

The new Slack app updates include:

  • New slash commands will replace hashtags (ie, /prodpad instead of #idea)
  • New message actions on existing text in Slack. This allows you to select an existing Slack message and send it to ProdPad as either an idea or feedback. Message actions and details are available for all users.

  • More detailed information on ProdPad URLs displayed on Slack, including product name, tags, and personas for all ideas and feedback, providing more detailed context on links pasted.

  • Reply directly to threads from Slack, including pasted ProdPad URLs. All discussions will be synced directly to the ProdPad discussion and thread.
  • @mention users directly in threads to bring them into the conversation, with auto-syncing to the ProdPad thread included.
