Applications basically connect with Slack so the user is not forced to leave their work or waste time going from one tab to another (or from one app to another) since everything will be connected, in the same place and in one simple to use platform, creating a more pleasant and fluid workspace, eliminating communication and time barriers.

It is located in the left sidebar and if this option is not found, simply select “more”, there the option not found before will be displayed.
