On August 19th, many Slack customers received notifications that the Buildkite app was being removed. Here is the contents of the email.
We want to inform you of a change coming to the Slack App Directory that impacts your workspace, WORKSPACE_NAME.
On October 1st, we are deprecating a few apps that have been built and maintained by Slack over the past few years—including the following app that is currently installed on your workspace:
This app has not been updated in some time, and as a part of our effort to verify that all apps available in the App Directory are of the highest quality, we made a decision to remove it.
We know removing an app may be disappointing, but we encourage you to browse through our App Directory for alternative solutions. If you have questions or feedback, please let us know at email@example.com — we’re here to help.
The Slack Team
Please provide guidance on any actions we as users need to take should the app be removed on October 1st.
