Learn more about Slack features.
Slack is a communications and workflow solution designed for teams. Using Slack, you can set up channels, which can be around any theme, project, client or department. You can invite people to join these channels, or make them private, and people can leave whenever they want. With Slack’s search functionality, you can quickly skip to past communications. You can also star conversations to add them to your favorites, and allow you to quickly access them again in the future. Slack threads allow people to carry on the conversation in a separate place, rather than cluttering up the channel with their responses. With Slack, you can share PDFs, images, videos, and gifs, and you can mention one individual or multiple people within channels to get their attention. You can also direct message people when you want to have 1-2-1 conversations, and quickly add more people to that conversation if you need more opinions.

Integrations are a strength of Slack, being able to collect notifications from many applications in one place is something that Slack offers you efficiently. The price is very cheap, which makes it easy for any Freelancer to get the services. The simplicity of the software makes it very easy to use. You can set up your own account, add colleagues and assign access to anyone you want. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Collaboration tools are very limited. There is no real time editing, nor important management such as contacts and content. You need to have the last update of the program to be able to see other people's status. The text format is global and there is no way to configure it to the user's liking Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I wish there were some kind of surveys so we could connect more as a team. An option for comments would be useful as well. Slack possibly has too many tools, you can hardly use all of them, so being able to simplify the program would be a good idea. You could do something about the mobile application, since sometimes it takes time to receive the notifications in time Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
This software contains high quality video conferences in which we connect with our employees to define future projects. The real-time chat is excellent. We have been using the project and document manager in the collaboration options. We will also use it to optimally complete next year's budget Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I love how easy it is to use. I used Slack for a short period time before I came to my new company and it was self explanatory since all of the functions, groups, and people could be searched at the very top. I also like how customizable it is. There is the classic purple view but there are also other options to make it any color, font, notification you want. It can be personalized with whatever you want it to look.
I also like how modern it is. I've used other chat functions at other companies and it just isn't as collaborative and fun as Slack. There are funny emojis that we can use/make and also GIFs, a polling feature, and private groups that we can make.
The last thing I like is the integrations. You can integrate it with Pagerduty, Zoom, Google calendar, etc so it puts a lot of things that I use everyday into one single platform Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Maybe the only dislike is that since it's so fun to use, it can be pretty distracting and it's easy to use it as a personal tool instead of a working tool. There aren't many other things that I dislike because I am a big fan of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Use it! If you are at a modern, fun, and young company. It's so easy to get it up and running and also get messages on the go if you download the app on your phone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We are solving a communication problem. Email is pretty old school and sending direct messages and being in group chats is the new way to communicate one on one or in bigger groups.
The biggest benefit is the fact that information can be moved along faster and people can be notified in a faster manner. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
We were testing to find the best app since the pandemic began, initially to replace email communication and find something mobile and efficient. Slack is one of the tools we have been testing continuously and the team loves the experience. I'm glad to say we have minimized sending emails to only outbound communications. Great tool for work collaboration specifically with development teams.

Slack on mobile, many a times loads messages very slow. It is kind of hung, notification says someone has sent message, but seeing that message on clicking it takes a lot of time. (not sure if this is my mobile issue, but have had same issues on two handsets) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

All conversations are arquived, it is awesome because it is possible to view old messages even if some one joined a group after it started and if a member of the group leaves the messages remain. It is easy to search for any subject or file on Slack. I like to organize groups or individual conversations, I can favorite a conversations as well. It is possible to integrate some tools in Slack with Google Calendar, Zoom, Google Drive and others. This helps to facilitate the employee's routine because there are numerous reminders and files shared quickly Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I do not have any dislikes about Slack, there is only a suggestion about that. The Slack's technical support take so longer than usual to response and there is not a great FAQ to help. And the video calls does not work very well it usually to be mute or the camera has some delay. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
I recommend Slack for all the companies that would like to centralize communication and want to use a reliable tool, adorable, easy-to-use tool that can be integrated with different tools to facilitate the routine of the company and employees Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Slack helps build good communication with everyone in the same company. The communication can be more informal and take it more coolest. It is easy to search a line or file at Slack and it is easy to mark those as favorite. The integrations with some tools like Google Calendar, Zoom, Google Drive helps a lot the emplooyers routine Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The best thing in slack that you can create multiple channels and categorize each channel and add a section to it.
This new feature adds a lot of credibility to the platform and makes it easier to use and to categorize each channel according to my user desire.
Slack calls also good and the user can Channel call and communicate in the company objectives and needs through it.
Slack is available for everyone and everyone can create a workplace for free or even for a small amount of money per user.
So I would highly recommend every company to use such a great app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
What I dislike is in this Platform is the previous version or the version before the major update wasn't quite good or manageable as it is now.
Slack wasn't organized and I kept searching for the items I saved and it was hard to manage.
also Calls quality not that good comparing other communication apps and platforms.
Also, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
Slack is the best communication platform for every company Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
The major problem that slack have now is the huge amount of channels that can't be archived or hidden somewhere to return whenever the user needs.
adding this feature will add more creditability to the platform and will make the platform more manageable and easy to use
The benefits of using slack are a better way of communication between the company internal team or even external and it's usability and how easy it is to use Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
