There is no desktop app for Any.do. This is the only con I can see now.

Slack

It is especially valuable in helping with communcation between remote team members. The ability to call and share screens is really helpful, and has become our go to method to communicate, eliminating the need for skype and our various conference call systems available in our company. Using Slack for calls and meetings is now extensive within our group, and is done many, many times per day. it is easy to add people and to share and give sharing capabilities to other team members.

Slack

  • The sorting of channels - it's a bit confusing, could be better sorted, it would make it easier to search and make it more agile.
  • Search - It could also improve, it is not bad, but in some cases (rare) it is difficult to find the term that you want.
  • Heavy performance in other operating systems - At least in Linux, Slack seems to do a little more machine performance than when it is used on a computer running Windows.

Slack sitll lacks in functionality. It's better than Skype for Business in many ways, but it is still another chat/message board app. It has limits in free version and paid versions. Also Windows app has errors that bother me, for example, I see number on one of my team's icons. It suggests that one of channels has unread messages; I check all channels - no unread messages, but that "1" still appears

The system does seem to hang quite a bit, completely unrelated to my internet connection, which can get a little annoying when you are in the middle of a conversation and cannot respond and the conversation moves on without you or creates a lull in the discussion that gets everyone off topic.

Alternatives Considered

Any.do

Any.do is simple and easy to use. I'm huge fan of Wunderlist, but now a fan of Any.do too.

I've used Discord which is a direct Slack competitor in tech/gaming communities and I have found both have strengths and weaknesses. Once I've gotten accustomed to certain text formatting features of Slack, I've found switching over to using Discord was sometimes disappointing when a formatting feature was absent. Slack has some nice code/syntax highlighting/sharing features which Discord does not have.

Return on Investment

Any.do

  • Easy to use
  • Good customer support
  • Great to increase our productivity

Slack

  • I'm not sure how measurable it is to determine impact of a chat app on business.
  • It does help us to maintain effective communication avenues between our office and remote employees.
  • It helps us schedule easy reminders which can keep us accountable to our customer/lead follow-ups which definitely helps alleviate some stresses with customers.
