Slack Raises Series H Round of Financing From New Investors
Several People Are Typing | Slack is happy to share that they will add an additional $427 million of investment at a post-money valuation of more than $7.1 billion. This Series H equity round is in addition to the $841 million previously raised.

Add Users and Google Groups to Domain-Restricted Google+ Communities
G Suite Updates | Google is adding the ability to directly add users and Google Groups as members of Google+ Communities. When a moderator adds a group, group members are automatically added to the community. Subsequent updates to the group membership are automatically reflected in the community membership.

Docs Activity Dashboard Now Available to All G Suite Users
G Suite Updates | Google is making the Activity dashboard feature available to all G Suite users. Previously this feature was not fully available to G Suite Basic customers.

Use Quick-Access Side Panel to Do More from Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Calendar, and More
G Suite Updates | Google is adding a quick-access side panel to the Docs editors and Google Calendar to help you quickly access other G Suite products without leaving what you’re working on. A similar side panel has been a popular feature of the new Gmail, and they hope that this integration will help you work more efficiently within and across G Suite.

ServiceNow and Box Together Power Future of Work, Drive Digital Transformation
Service Matters | ServiceNow is thrilled to announce integrations between ServiceNow and Box, Inc. No longer will employees need to toggle between both platforms to get work done but instead, they can securely access the Box files they need where they’re already working – from within the Now Platform.
