Where collaboration drives results
Slack lets you communicate freely with your work team or any other small group. Staying on top of projects has never been so easy.
An efficient way to communicate online
Stay organized with this messaging program. It’s the perfect way to keep in touch with colleagues.
Chat with your team members outside of the office without giving out personal details such as your phone number. Slack is an online program where you can communicate with colleagues professionally. It offers threads for private and public discussions, and puts a range of third-party apps at your disposal.
You can create a team and start up a channel. Discuss ideas, projects, or just take the chance to organize yourselves outside of work hours. You can opt for a public thread where everyone can view and add to the discussion. If you prefer that only a few colleagues see a post or thread, create a private channel that’s only accessible for certain members of a team. The other option is to keep your discussions as limited, or as open, as you want.
Never miss a beat with the convenient notification options. You can choose when Slack notifies you and in which platform they do so. Access emails whenever a certain keyword is mentioned. Slack can text you if a particular colleague has commented on a thread. These are a few of the ways you can fine-tune alerts to your personal taste.
Upload any type of file format and share it quickly and efficiently with your team. You can also send these files across to one of the many integrated apps, such as Trello, Google Drive, and ZenDesk. It makes collaboration easier when you have other programs available from one interface.
Slack’s biggest pitfall though, is that it doesn’t have audio or video chat options. If you’re a fan of hosting video call meetings, this might be an issue for you. The app also lacks productivity tools such as a calendar or to-do list.
