Slack announced a new Workflow Builder tool that automates routine actions and communications.

It allows users to automatically collect and route info to the right teams, standardize how to collect and share info up front, and create a customized workflow.

“By doing all of this in Slack, where your team is already working, you’re keeping things simpler and more transparent for everyone. Building a workflow takes just a few clicks. You can customize it for the way you work and publish it for your team to use all in a matter of minutes,” Slack explained.

The details on the tool are available here.
