Why won't 'go to channel' open in the Slack app - new browser window every time.

When I click the slack button on a card to send it to a slack channel and then click "go to channel" it doesn't open my slack app on my Mac but instead opens a new tab in a browser every single time. I want the channel to be opened in my slack application.  Is this an issue?

@DT Admin Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

Trello is a web application and slack app on your Mac is not.  Unless the browser has a way to identify the desktop application (plugin) the browser has no way to link the two togerther.  So it opens a web browser window that in turn opens the application by launching it when you click the link in the window.  I have the same issue.

Thanks, Brant. Makes sense. Bummer though.
