Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.
Easiest way to get everything under one roof.Cons:
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.Cons:
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.
Easy to use, nice to collaborate with my team!Cons:
I am really satisfied, didn't find anything you could improve!

simple, usable, fastCons:
sometimes slow code snippets
This is one of the bast conversation tools I've used personally.

I collaborate with multiple organizations and seamlessly integrate apps into the chat function for domain name availability to trello cards.Cons:
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.
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.
Chat rooms, privacy, cat gifsCons:
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.

Suffers from downtime now and again.

Slack is a great communication tool for teams. Especially when you're remote and want to get a message to your team faster than an email.Cons:
It can get a bit distracting just like a text message so I tend to shut off notifications when doing a specific task.
