This tab is a new tool that developers are trying to draw attention to in the new interface.Using the More button, the user can add “Canvas”, view all channels available to him in the workspace, and also connect built-in programs.“We know millions of users start and end their workday in Slack, so we’ve made sure these improvements make their work more productive and enjoyable. The new interface helps teams stay organized, focus on what’s important, and quickly access Slack’s growing set of tools,” explained Noah Weiss, director of product at Slack.On June 28, 2023, Slack disabled Russian language support in its application. This option has been available on the platform since June 30, 2021. Users from the Russian Federation and CIS countries will continue to be able to forward messages and communicate using Cyrillic. If necessary, the developers advised users to translate the Slack interface into Russian in its browser version of the platform using online content translation services.
