About the redesign
Slack has released a redesign that brings significant changes to the organization of the interface and layout of workspaces. The update will be pushed out to you automatically on Dec.19, 2023 — there's nothing for you to do, although you may need to refresh your desktop app. You'll see changes in all the versions of the app you use, including desktop, web browser, and mobile apps.
With the update, a unified view will enable you to navigate through all your Stanford channels without toggling between workspaces. Your channels will display in one list, but you can tailor your what you see by filtering or creating customized sections. You can also switch between workspaces to focus on tasks from a specific workspace. The reimagined left sidebar introduces new features and navigation, providing dedicated views. These changes aim to make the interface more intuitive and easier to get around.
