A few people from the Slack platform team will be hanging out here to ask questions if you have any!

We were one of the partners that launched with Slack's message buttons! One of the coolest features that sets it apart from other messaging apps is that the buttons can update to reveal new options: It allowed us to design a home button on chat. One of the biggest problems with bots is people rarely remember what is the correct command to give. See more

Very thrilled to be part of the launch of Slack Message Buttons, not just as developers but also as users. With Kyber, we build an entire productivity suite *within* Slack: • Project management • Task delegation • Team Calendar • Personal productivity (to-do list, reminders, events) ...without leaving Slack!
