Overall Satisfaction with Slack

We use Slack throughout our entire organisation. It's an incredible piece of software which makes segmenting announcements a simple & effective process. One of the most attractive features that this software provides is the ability to integrate seamlessly with many third party software vendors, making the benefit two-fold.

It's thanks to integration potential that we're able to schedule alerts, announcements, birthday reminders and more all in one central location.
  • Slack provides the ability to create to-do list style reminders at specific times & recurring intervals.
  • Slack makes direct messaging, announcements & communication in general easy.
  • Slack provides a great way to get to know your colleagues & have a transparent conversation history.
  • There's a slight learning curve involved with the reminder interface.
  • Offline chat is problematic & LAN sync not always effective.
  • Private channels can clutter up your work-space pretty easily, so be sure to restrict access.
  • Slack has made communication & announcements a simple task for our business.
Slack is ideal for company-wide correspondence, announcements & reminders. I wouldn't specifically recommend Slack as a direct messaging software replacement, though it definitely has merit in its ability to bring groups of individuals together & set up reminders for specific tasks in departmentally focused channels. The free version of the software is excellent, too.
