Washington [US], May 20 (ANI): Slack’s proprietary business communication platform now deploys a new feature for profiles that will allow users to list their pronouns just under their name and workplace.
According to The Verge, once filled in, pronouns will appear both in the mini-profiles that are seen when a user clicks on someone’s name and in full profiles.
Slack profiles may already have a pronoun field if an administrator has created a custom field for company employees. Slack said administrators can continue to use the older custom field or choose to activate this new one, although the new dedicated pronouns field has the advantage of appearing more prominently in the profile.
According to The Verge, this new field will be hidden by default, but Slack administrators will have to invest it in everyone in a Slack workspace.
With the addition of this new option, Slack joins some other apps that allow people to add pronouns to profiles, like Instagram just received last week, OkCupid and Lyft. (ANI)
