Diving into this week's Halpful Tips Roundup, we took note of an article about the idea of removing passwords to help overworked and understaffed IT Managers. Also, Slack announces its decision to go public and their new bridge to bring in email users to the Slack experience. Their hope is to eventually 2-way sync internal email and slack messages. Lastly, we came up with 6 of our top Jira Service Desk features that will enhance the employee and agent experience.
