Overall Satisfaction with Slack

We use Slack across our entire organization including our main office, remote offices, and remote employees. We use it for company-wide communication, project team communication, one-on-one chat, location-specific community bucatini and as hoc group chat. We do project planning, casual messaging, news and event posting, voting, doc and photo sharing, and in/out-of-office notices.
  • Entry of messages to any individual or group
  • Display of messages in a readable firmat
  • Options for customizing notifications by channel
  • User management
  • Channel management
  • Ability to mute channels such as Jira
  • More features for customizing notification to apply globally
  • Options for scheduled notifications
  • It allows us to collaborate with remote employees more effective than over phone or video conference.
  • It creates a sense of team that raises employee satisfaction and creates a desirable work culture for prospective hires
  • It allows us to vote across the company very quickly to make important decisions where all voices matter
It is best for conversational communication back and forth rather than posting critical information that could get buried and lost in a series of exchanges between people. Great for immediate sharing of information to online users paying attention but thus can leave out those offline or not looking.
