It is Halloween and Slack picks the moment to engage its users by introducing a lot of customization in its app. It has opened a number of options that allow you to customize it to utmost level. This is quite good following the number of advance steps we have recently seen with the Slack. And Halloween is the most correct time to engage users.
Current additions into the nice features of the Slack came in bulk this week with certain Halloween profile customization. With the help of new options on the users profile you can create custom profiles. These custom profiles will display extra details of your users that you have set to show up.
The customization of profiles allows you to set different fields of information that you want to show. For instance you can set your users to show details like their username on twitter or name of their manager. With customization many interesting fields can be added but the permission to add fields unrestricted to the admin or the owner of the team. However, once applied by the administration the field works for the entries team.
Apart from adding the fields and profile customization there are some other additions too that helps in many ways. For instance with its newly introduced tweaks you can stay on the desktop app and edit your profile. Also when you click the username the profile picture is displayed larger that looks more detailed.
If you have been on the Slack before, you can feel the differences. Before newly introduced customization users could only mention Skype usernames and contact numbers. This is obviously too short for a profile when people have multiple social platforms to connect. Thus with new options now you can add new fields and show users names of your twitter, Facebook and other accounts.
