On December 19, 2023, Slack users will experience a new and improved interface designed by Slack to help users stay organized, focused, and productive. The transition to the redesigned experience applies to all Slack accounts, including all members of the UCR Slack Enterprise Grid.

According to Slack, the redesigned layout has better organization and is more intuitive so users can get work done faster. The new experience also features the following:

  • A unified view of all your messages and channels (although new features still allow you to narrow your view to a single Workspace, if desired)
  • A streamlined view of your go-to Slack features (Home, DMs, Activity, Later, etc.)
  • A single menu for your most useful Slack tools (Message, Huddle, Canvas, and Channel)
  • Improved Search experience
