Unlock your productivity potential with Slack Platform

Connect, simplify, and automate work.

Save time with Slack's new automations

Assemble automations using modular, shareable, and remixable building blocks.

Use your custom functions, pick from pre-defined Slack functions, or combine both to get the automations you want.
