Slack Image and Message Changes

Published on February 19, 2019

Do you use Slack? If so, we have a major update for you! Today we released significant upgrades to how we handle images and support for additional message types.

In the recent past, we often couldn’t pull in images from Slack, and that’s now been fixed. We know this was a major headache for many of you.

The reason we couldn’t pull in images was related to authentication and how our systems work, but now while we are authorized and getting the posts, we can now grab the related images, and make them available to our backends.

It’s really complicated, and a lesson for another day, but, we hope you enjoy posting your GIFs… oh, yeah! We now support animated GIFs from Slack.
