slapdash-platform.jpg

We built the Command Bar to be the fastest interface in the world. To unlock functionality, just connect some apps. But what about the apps we don't support? Or, apps we can't possibly support, such as your company tools?

To that end, we are opening up and open sourcing our development platform, letting anyone build insanely fast, shareable workflows.

To get started, visit the developer site for documentation or peruse some community commands that you can one-click install for inspiration.

SOC2 Compliant

Slapdash is architected with security and privacy in mind, but protecting customer data is not just confined to code. Equally important are the company processes: from the way we hire, to the tools we use, to the way we monitor and enforce our security standards.

With that in mind, we recently went through an intensive security audit to confirm that the way we work and the way Slapdash is built adheres to the highest standards. As a result of the audit, we are now officially SOC2 Type I compliant.

This is just one checkpoint on our journey to build humane software that people can trust.

Design updates

We tuned the visual language across the Slapdash main window, surfacing new controls, added keyboard hints for keyboard navigation and spruced up the Home and Spaces view.

Customize your command icons

The icon associated with the command is not just decorative, it helps you move faster by quickly being able to identify the command that is about to run.

You could always use emojis to visually distinguish your commands, and with the latest release you can upload any icon of your choosing to better match the command at hand.

collapsible-sidebar.jpg

Like the rear wing of an F1 race car, the sidebar in the Slapdash main window can now be collapsed to unlock a more aerodynamic form factor. It allows for improved information density and it just looks great too.

Type ⌘ \ (or Alt \ on Windows and Linux) to open & close it with a keyboard shortcut.

clickup-open-in-desktop.jpg

Opening ClickUp items from Slapdash will now open them directly in the ClickUp desktop app if it's installed on your computer. You'll need the latest ClickUp desktop app for this to work.

changelog-keyboard-shortcuts.jpg

You can now bind a keyboard shortcut or alias to any command in Slapdash.

An alias helps you type less into the Command Bar and guarantees the aliased command will match. For example, if you bind the "s" alias to Update Slack Status, typing just "s" in the Command Bar is guaranteed to pull up that command. If you are sharing commands with a team, aliases are shared too for a faster team workflow.

We've had aliases for a while, but now every command can also be invoked with a keyboard shortcut. This lets you skip one step of opening the Command Bar and run the command directly with whatever shortcut you choose. They keyboard shortcuts you set will only work on your computer and won't affect others if it's a shared command.

To add a shortcut or alias, choose the "Configure" option for the command.

new-commands-page.jpg

We updated our commands page to make it easier to see what commands you have available to you as well as help you create new ones.

changelog-dropbox-desktop.jpg

When accessing Dropbox files from Slapdash, we previously would redirect you to the Dropbox web app to open the file. This isn't the fastest interface, especially if the file at hand is already on your computer. With the latest release, Slapdash will try to open the folder or file directly on your computer first for a faster and more natural experience.

changelog-slack-status-2.jpg

We added a couple of new commands for Slack: Update Slack Status and Clear Stack Status. You'll be able to quickly set your Slack status directly from the Command Bar. If you always set the same status, you can also create a template command that calls up the command with the details pre-filled.
