Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.
Easiest way to get everything under one roof.
Building active communities is really hard.
I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.
Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.
Possibility to be logged on multiple teams, being available at all times on mobile and desktop, and easy to connect with other services.
I'm pretty happy with Slack, so no cons for now :)
As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.
managing multiple conversations could be easier
I love using emails less.
UX Improvement: Having conversation tabs similar to any modern web browser so important conversations don't get lost in the left menu drawer.
New Feature: Calendar. This would hopefully kill our company's horrific use of Microsoft Outlook once and for all :-)Adam S Hurwitz has used this product for one year.
Easy to set up, simple to use, awesome for remote teams
None that I can see
Transformed the way we deal with freelancers and sped up our communication exponentially. It means that we can have reactive conversations, essentially 'spinning around in the chair and chatting,' when we think of something.Rhys Knight has used this product for one year.
Chat rooms, privacy, cat gifs
We use Slack at 99designs for all internal comms and have even implemented a Slack plugin for customers on our site to help manage their design contests. It's a great communication tool, offering the ability to create various chat rooms for different purposes (we have serious ones like #Announcements and silly ones like #dadjokes) and communicate across our international offices. We also recently started using Slack's video chat feature and definitely like it more than Google Hangouts - better connectivity for sure.Brea Ninetynine has used this product for one year.
I collaborate with multiple organizations and seamlessly integrate apps into the chat function for domain name availability to trello cards.
Wish they had a better app market to integrate with Slack.
Overall this product works smoothly and the updates the developer releases are meaningful and truly addresses a lot of the bugs I generally see the week before a release. They true stay on top of the product and make a great interface for user interaction.
Fully featured yet smooth and fast.
Very efficient notifications.
The repeated third party apps integration tips is almost spammy.
A little more inline tips on text formatting would help
I use this one everyday, will not be installing the native app for my desktop and I really wish this was available for mobile as well. As a web technology addict, I'd say this is one beautifully made web-app and it totally does what it needs to do. Even better.Chris | Vrixe has used this product for one year.
Smooth as silk. Great integrations. Fun to use. Great for comms.
Multiple Slack channels still not handled super well on desktop.
Well, it's Slack. You know what it is. It's pretty cool, eh? Still crossing fingers for a smoother Slack desktop experience, but otherwise it's a marvelous thing.Sebastian Marshall has used this product for one year.
Different channels, cool integrations with other apps (google analytics, poll etc)
Thread function could be improved
It's a great app for chatting with your team (workmates). What I like it has different channels you can create and post relevant chats (like marketing, sales, product dev etc). Also, you can integrate this with other tools like for eg. google analytics and let them send a notification message to a specified channel in case of anomalities etc. Great alternative to skype for business!Dovile Sinke has used this product for one month.
Make internal communication WAY easier
I really can't think of any
Slack is a great communication software that can totally eliminate internal email communications. Also let's not forget about the huge marketplace behind it, which enables insane amount of intergration.Edward Hu has used this product for one year.
simple, usable, fast
sometimes slow code snippets
This is one of the bast conversation tools I've used personally.
Fast & simple with a different ways to express your thoughts.
Fancy code & snippet tools, but sometimes link preview feature can be hell :(Vjatseslav Gedrovits has used this product for one year.
Easy to use, nice to collaborate with my team!
I am really satisfied, didn't find anything you could improve!
We use Slack at work! We are really satisfied with the tool - so we directly integrated eyeson in Slack ;) https://www.producthunt.com/search?q=eyeson+for+slackAndreas Kroepfl has used this product for one year.
Interface, multi-platform, accessibility
Slack is awesome! Very well thought-out with tons of short cuts, a great API and a pretty robust app directory to enhance the experience in all kinds of ways, some fun, some serious. Definitely integrates with almost all major platforms and the apps for Android and iOS are fantastic as well. No complaints here.Jeremy Krantz has used this product for one year.
Interesting concept but I like GroupMe or Sling more
Not the best way to keep in touch professionally. Used it for one of my last positions and it wasn't user friendly b/w web and app :(
Interesting concept but the channels can get pretty confusing and there were many miscommunications between our organization because people couldn't use it coherently. Maybe I'll try it again sometime but I need a break.Cody Ingraham has used this product for one year.
Slack creates an egaging environment for open conversation.
I found the channel threads get quite tricky, convos easily get lost.
Slack also has a lot of good integrations with other softwares make our day-to-day work super easy. The option of free slack also gives the opportunity to connect with people outside of org.Ashley B. Zhou has used this product for one year.
its incredible good to use , and works flawlessly over different devices
can be frustrating if channels are large can mean missing out on lots of messages
great for both work , small teams and even for creating communitys
- Good UX.
- Perfect for internal-communication in a business.
- Sharing documents, screenshots, images ect
- Group messages
Can't put a finger on it!
We're a Saas company and we use it every single day for ALL communication. It is just a great tool.Emil Kristensen has used this product for one year.
Simple and intuitive UI.
Share feedback in real time across teams.
Reduces communication gaps and improves productivity.
Ummm, no such cons so far:)
Saying that Slack will replace email communication channel, wouldn't be an overstatement :)
Intuitive, with a nice interface.
Suffers from downtime now and again.
It's a flashier version of HipChat, but not demonstrably better necessarily. Although I do like how shared Google documents show up in chats.Chad Reid has used this product for one year.
I can see what my team is up to in real time and have a history of it.
Can be distracting if you aren't careful.
Adding more voice integrations would be amazing.Jim Rand has used this product for one year.
