Tasks for Slack implements all basic requirements for task tracking without leaving Slack. - Do not change the usual chatting process. It marks a thread as a task, so the discussion will continue as it may be before. - There're no additional registrations or web pages. Everything you need is already in Slack. - Track tasks change via messages in a thread. The App sends a message when a task is changed. - The App adds emoji with the task state to a thread, so you can easily find which task is done or not. - Group tasks by channels as by logical scope. Channels are already in your projects or departments, thus no need to do anything additional. - Message notifications are embedded into Slack, so you can configure it as you want.

Data archiving and removal policy
Data storage policy
The database works on a separate virtual server with the firewall to allow access only from the private network with whitelists of IP addresses. The database doesn't contain any user data. We store just message text, message URL, author UUID, assignee UUID, and assignee nickname.

Data deletion request procedure
Bot sends private message to a admin of workspace to confirm request than schedule data deletion to 24 hours from admin confirmation time to be able to cancel deletion before erase data.
We make daily backups to protect your data in case of sudden failures or malicious attacks. For the last 3 days we make and store 3 backups for each day. For older backups we store 1 backup per a day. Backups are kept in Netherlands for a for a month and half. Older versions of backups are regularly deleted. In the event of damage to your data, backups will allow you to restore a normal workflow with almost no loss. On your request, we can delete all your data, excluding backups, at any time. In rare case when backup will be restored we immediately delete requested data right after backup restoring.
While this app may offer HIPAA compliance, Slack does not have a business associate agreement with any third-party application providers, including those in the Slack App Directory, so you are responsible for validating the provider's compliance and executing an appropriate agreement before enabling.
