Enhance Your Slack Efficiency with Slack Tools App The Slack Tools app is designed to boost productivity and coordination within your team. This app offers powerful commands for bulk actions and scheduling. Whether you need to send messages to multiple users, invite members to channels all together, or schedule replies for later, Slack Tools provides the capabilities to make your workflow smoother and more efficient. Additionally, the app includes a channel management system that allows users to create and manage channels or request permissions from admins, streamlining your team's communication structure. ## Features - **Schedule Messages:** Add the 📅 emoji to any message to schedule it for later, or use the command **/tools schedule** followed with message link and message. - **Bulk DM via Form:** Use the command **/tools dm** to open a form for bulk direct messaging to users in selected channels. - **Bulk DM with Message:** Use the command **/tools dm** followed by the message to bulk direct message users in the specified channel. - **Invite All Users:** Use the command **/tools invite** to invite all users to the current channel. - **Invite from Another Channel:** Use the command **/tools invite channelName** to invite all users from the specified channel to the current channel. - **Request a New Channel:** Use the command **/tools request channel** to ask for a new channel. - **Create a New Public Channel:** Use the command **/tools create channel** followed by the channel name to create a new public channel. - **Create/Update a Channel:** Use the command **/tools create channel** or **/tools update channel** to create/manage a channel. ## How to get started Once you complete the setup and specify the channel for new channel requests, you're good to go. You may need to grant global channel management permissions to some users, allowing them to use commands like creating or updating channels or approving channel creation requests. Beyond that, no extra setup is needed. You can use the /tools help command anytime for assistance. Or, you can [join our Slack community](https://actioner.com/community) to get additional help.

Data archiving and removal policy
For the most up to date policy information, always refer to: https://actioner.com/privacy-policy , https://actioner.com/gdpr and https://actioner.com/security.  Whenever a user account is deleted by a workspace admin, Actioner automatically deletes all data stored within the context of the deleted user account like profile information and the credentials / connections for the third party integrations. Whenever an app is deleted by an app admin, Actioner automatically deletes all data stored within the context of the app like tables, records, workflow, docs, files, etc. Whenever the workspace deletion is initiated by a workspace admin, Actioner automatically deletes all data stored within the context of workspace after a waiting period of 72 hours.

When any data is deleted, the archived copy of the data on Actioner’s backup systems will remain for 30 days and the backup data will be securely isolated and protected from any further processing, except as otherwise required by applicable law or regulation.
Data storage policy
At Actioner, ensuring the security of our users' data is paramount. To this end, we employ robust cryptography policies and practices. All data stored within our systems is encrypted at rest using the AES256 encryption standard, providing an additional layer of protection against unauthorized access. Furthermore, we uphold strict encryption standards for data in transit, both within our internal networks and over public channels. All data transmissions utilize TLS1.2 or higher encryption protocols, safeguarding information from interception or tampering. In terms of cryptographic key management, we rely on the AWS Key Management Service (KMS) for secure and controlled handling of cryptographic keys. This includes secure key generation, restricted access, secure storage, regular backups, and periodic rotation of keys. Our integration with AWS services streamlines the encryption process and enhances control over access to keys, thereby bolstering the overall security of our platform.We operate a comprehensive backup program at Actioner. This includes our internal systems, where our backup measures are designed in line with system recovery requirements. With respect to our cloud services, and specifically referring to you and your application data, we also have extensive backup measures in place. Our data backups are retained for 30 days with support for point-in-time recovery and are encrypted using AES-256 encryption.

Data hosting details
Actioner is a cloud-native product whose infrastructure is hosted on industry-leading cloud provider Amazon Web Services (AWS). Actioner cloud services and data are hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Where all our computing, messaging, network, and storage layers are located in the US West, our browser application is distributed via our CDN network all over the world. As a design standard, all Actioner services as well as the upstream computing, messaging, network and storage services are running on multiple availability zones (AZs) so that the traffic and the data are distributed among them. This design allows us to tolerate zone-specific failures with no downtime. This multi-zone high availability is the first line of defense for geographic and environmental risks and means that services running in multi-AZ deployments should be able to withstand AZ failure.
