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.

Pros: Slack is really the best way for teams to communicate. I use the web and mobile app and it lets me stay connected wherever I am. File sharing and integrations are also very helpful.
Cons: Having too many workspaces gets hard to navigate around if you are in many slack groups. Also, the built-in calling has never worked for me on the desktop but has on the mobile app.
Overall: I have tried other tools like Glip from RingCentral and Slack is just way more stable and easy to use. I suggest Slack whenever someone is talking about team communication tools.
Pros: A really awesome platform for an internal operating system for your organization. The basic free plan also very powerful. Available in so much device compatibility. 2 Steps Verification Security. So much more app developers.... Try to learn of this application it is so much powerful than what you can think of.
Cons: The GUI still can be able to be improving, Chat room or Channel cannot use a SPACE in the naming :(
Overall: So much love this platform....
Pros: There are so many great plugins that work with this team communication software. It's great to be able to utilize the different channels for different teams/areas of work and is a great organizational way to stay on top of effective communication.
Cons: While there are a lot of plugins Slack provides, figuring out how to use them/communicate with them can be tricky and confusing.
Overall: Communication is clearer as a whole and more is able to be accomplished effectively.
Pros: Slack is solid. it's slick and easy and gets me connected with priority clients and peers whenever I need it.
Cons: It's kinda a hassle to figure out the slack URL stuff when logging into new devices / 3rd party apps with the slack API
Overall: Love it. I was pretty against slack overall when I first started, but it's a solid complement to using just Skype.
Pros: Slack is an easy use online software to keep in touch with coworkers and share real time information. The posts are searchable making information easy to find. Posts are also able to be "starred" and "pinned" for reference at a later time.
Cons: Software can get overwhelming depending on amount of people using but if the tools that are available are utilized than it's easy to keep track of.
Pros: Big fan of slack! We integrated this into our agency about two years ago and has provided efficient and effective communication and collaboration. A great tool for communicating!
Cons: No real issues with Slack - overall ease of use is great and there are always really cool features and applications that can be integrated
Pros: Slacks really works pretty well. This is a very helpful tool for communication within a workplace or even for personal needs. On Slack, you can create a channel where people you add can connect and communicate with one another, works really well.
Cons: The software offers limited space, storage other than that no issues.
Overall: We have been using slack to communicate all across the cities through this handy tool.
Pros: It's extremely easy to use, and the phone app is great as well. Just type, hit enter, and go about your business!
Cons: No cons that I can see, honestly - there's a reason why this was the solution to a problem millions of people faced.
Overall: I use this both in my business and personal lives - highly recommended!
Pros: I have used and implemented use of Slack throughout multiple companies that I've worked for. The ease of communication it provides, along with the customization of setting up chat rooms is wonderful. It has made company discussions and events much easier to manage.
Cons: The only issue I've had in the past is with the inviting function, but it is such a minor grievance that it I shouldn't even mention it. This service is through and through a great service.
Overall: Slack has made my life much easier in terms of communicating and sharing information with my entire team.
Pros: Slack is an awesome tool for collaboration, chatting, and sharing content within teams and the workplace. I use Slack on a daily basis to communicate with peers and clients. The interface is easy to use and easy to look at as well.
Cons: I don't enjoy that Slack deletes conversations after a certain point in order to get people to upgrade. I think the free version of Slack should allow for conversations to still get stored and referenced. It's very inconvenient to have your important conversations disappear without warning.
