Slack is your single workspace that connects you with the people and tools you work with everyday, no matter where you are or what you do.
With Slack you get real-time messaging through calls and chat, a searchable record of all your files and conversations, and integrations with a growing number of handy bots and apps.
Now everyone can finally be on the same page and get their work done. Slack: It’s where work happens.
Other than WordPress, we probably use Slack more than anything else. The team communicates using Slack. It’s basically a chat tool – but a bit more robust than that. Slack is a SaaS tool, which means it lives in the cloud, but there’s an app for your phone, and an app for your desktop – so you don’t have to have your browser open all the time. I can privately talk to a team member, or talk publicly to a team about a project.
There are ways to invite clients and even the public in to share in one of your Slack “channels” (think chat-room). We have not needed to do that yet. You can upload documents and images, and all that, but we mostly use it to discuss everything and anything. We even have it set up to “ping” us when a client sends a support request – and also when those requests hit different stages of completion – which helps us cut down on the inter-team email back-and-forth.
Slack works well for us (although I do have some issues getting the notifications just like I want them).
Where 99% of our team communication happens.
As a semi-remote team, Slack helps provide powerful team communication/collaboration that keeps everyone on the same page and productive all day long (as long as you don’t have any gif/giphy integrations that is).
