    What a total waste of time

    What a total waste of time. I don't know anyone who sits logged into Sales Farce Permanently so this will become just another chatt app that you have to check to see if people are currently online... Internally we use Teams, Zoom, Slack, Confluence, Workvivo and god knows how many other platforms. This seems to be duplicating functionality most people have in multiple other places fo no benefit. It is not going to keep me logged onto Sales Farce any more than I possibly have to be and if I have to show something in SFDC the API integrations mean that those other tools currently work perfectly well enough.

    Seems to me like SFDC are trying to boil the ocean and offer every function under the sun without actually fixing all the things that are terminally broken in their shitty platform.
