Slack announces new admin features for larger organizations

Slack announces new admin features for larger organizations. Slack helps out admins with a new Announcements channel as a way to send messages to the whole organization, including user rights management to limit who can use the channel. It also announced APIs for templated workspaces. The programmatic, templated workflows prevents the tedious and manual process of setting up channels frequently for many users. For example, in higher ed or for corporate training programs where professors or trainers have to set up a lot of channels each semester or class. Last, Slack is automating the approval process for tools used inside the product. TechCrunch
