Planning your startup's acquisition just got easier with Slack's private shared channels

Slack announces major update for its Shared Channels feature

Building a slide deck, pitch, or presentation? However, while the content of public shared channels is searchable by others in a company, the content of those private channels will not appear in search results to people who are not included in the group.

Shared channels are still in the process of being beta tested, so the new privacy features are in beta as well.

But sometimes discussions between two companies are too sensitive for the entire company to see, so today slack is rolling out Private Shared Channels. This means you can choose to hide the shared channel from certain users in your team, and only let a select number of members access the shared channel.

Slack rolled out Shared Channels in beta in September 2016, which let employees from different organizations-such as an enterprise and its vendors-communicate on the platform. Private shared channels can be private for either both or just one of the companies in the channel.

"A shared channel discussing a potential merger may be private for both workspaces", the post stated.

Man arrested after body of Hamilton mother located
Hamilton drives a white 1996 Ford Escort, licence plate BRBL 996, which has some damage to the front fender. The pair has a young daughter together and there was a history of domestic violence, police said.

Slack still isn't saying when these features will leave beta, but they're available now for all paying accounts.

Slack is also rolling out a new channel management section where administrators can view all of the external workspaces their workspace is connected to, see how many-and which-channels are shared with each workspace, and create new shared channels.

Back in September previous year, Slack announced a new brand new feature called Shared Channels which connects two separate organizations, creating a common channel for both sides to make use of Slack's features and platform integrations when working together.

Slack has garnered a lot of traction in the enterprise with more than 9 million weekly active users, more than 6 million daily active users and an global customer base that's 55 percent of the total.
