Product Details

What is Slack?

Slack is a Digital HQ
As the command center of the workday, Slack provides a flexible way to work with people, apps and partners in one space.

The new space for success
Slack connects people with each other and with their tools and data, equipping teams to be productive and open up opportunities.

Transform Teamwork
Working together in channels—dedicated spaces built around specific projects and initiatives—keeps the right people and information in one place.

Embrace Flexibility
Huddles let teams chat over audio instantly, with the option for video and screen sharing with the tap of a button.

Work Faster
With clips, teams can create audio, video and screen recordings to share updates, walk through demos or talk out an idea with more clarity (and personality).

Extend Collaboration
Slack Connect lets users work alongside external partners and customers in Slack channels, to speed up projects and strengthen relationships.

Integrate Tools
From project management tools to a daily calendar, Slack integrates with more than 2,400 applications.

Automate Tasks
In Slack, users can turn routine meetings and tasks like standups, approvals and requests into automated workflows.
