Update: More transparent permissions, and schedule messages with Slack shortcuts

Slack Scheduler > Blog > Update: More transparent permissions, and schedule messages with Slack shortcuts

This update to Slack Scheduler has been a long time coming! It introduces mostly back-end changes, but these will enable us to pick up development pace which I'm really excited for. 

The biggest update we had was upgrading to Slack's V2 Oauth. This has a couple of benefits:

  • It means we can request fewer permissions
  • We can add security and compliance reviews
  • We have specific scopes for User and Bot tokens

We hope this makes it easier to add Slack Scheduler to your team, and pass your security reviews. 

You can read more about Slack's V2 Oauth update here.

More importantly, migrating to V2 has held up development for us for a while as we ensure the migration happens smoothly. We can now re-focus on adding some new scheduling features to the app. 

The first of these is the ability to quickly schedule messages using Slack shortcuts!

Just click on the shortcuts command and you'll see the schedule option now available.

We're looking forward to introducing more updates soon!
