Shoutouts from recent launches
We love Slack and its granular and meticulous API interface that allowed us to interface Casc with all the features we had in mind and many more coming soon!
I use it every workday to stay in touch. I work at a fully remote company so it's critical. But it's also critical to be able to turn it off or mute it. Slack gets that.

Skip sending just greetings without info.
Avoid uninformative standalone "greeting" messages, when saying "hello" to a recipient. Even if you send your actual message immediately after that. This habit distracts are work, wastes other people time, and hence causes irritation. By holding down the Shift key and then pressing Enter, you can seamlessly move to the next line, so you can type "Hello", then Shift + Enter , then your actual message.
