Slack brings team communication and collaboration into one place so you can get more work done, whether you belong to a large enterprise or a small business. Check off your to-do list and move your projects forward by bringing the right people, conversations, tools, and information you need together. Slack is available on any device, so you can find and access your team and your work, whether you’re at your desk or on the go.
Use Slack to:
• Communicate with your team and organize your conversations by topics, projects, or anything else that matters to your work
• Message or call any person or group within your team
• Share and edit documents and collaborate with the right people all in Slack
• Integrate into your workflow, the tools and services you already use including Google Drive, Salesforce, Dropbox, Asana, Twitter, Zendesk, and more
• Easily search a central knowledge base that automatically indexes and archives your team’s past conversations and files
• Customize your notifications so you stay focused on what matters
Scientifically proven (or at least rumored) to make your working life simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. We hope you’ll give Slack a try.

• Fixed: Tapping on an empty input field used to show the options for “cut” and “copy,” but there was nothing to select. What do you copy when there is no text? If you copy text that isn't there, does it even exist?
• Fixed: When editing a channel’s topic, changes were being saved even if you tapped “cancel,” essentially telling the app, “Yes, absolutely do that right now” instead of “Undo.” This bug has now been undone.
• Fixed: Beginning a message with a “slash” would cause the shortcuts menu to open, which then had to be dismissed before you could return to composing your message. Shortcuts are for saving time, not adding to it, so our inadvertent “longcut” has been whittled down.
• Fixed: Sometimes your workspace would indicate “-1” new users had joined, which was pretty spooky. While our terms of service do not have a specific clause against nonexistent individuals using Slack, we have made the executive decision to limit all workspace members to those denoted by positive integers.
Ratings and Reviews
Good except for notifications
Overall the app works quite well. Some things are big misses for me though, especially notifications. Putting a lot of detail in hopes it is read by developers as I do want to love the app.
Searching for users when trying to start a DM doesn’t prioritize users you’ve talked to before. I work at a company with thousands of employees, so if I search for someone with a common first name and I don’t know their last name, I have to go through a list of 30 people when I’ve talked to them before and I’d expect them to just come up first.
Messages you read on web or on the app don’t dismiss notifications. I have to go dismiss them all one at a time even though the app should know I’ve read them. Big failing for me compared to something like FB messenger which will know to clear them.
There are no different snooze settings for different days of the week. I don’t work 7 days a week. Why would I want the same snooze settings?
There is no granularity on getting alerts for channels besides give me everything all the time, and give me nothing. If a conversation is happening I want to know about it, but I also don’t want my phone to completely blow up with 50 notifications beeping at me in 10 minutes. It would be much less distracting / annoying to group the messages and notify on configurable intervals
Lastly, if I get a message while snoozed I am not told about it once the snooze ends. This can lead to me not noticing a message for days
I love slack. I started using slack in January for my job, as our communications channel, between team members. This app has never caused me any problems. It’s NEVER: crashed, logged me out unexpectedly, had any technical problems, deleted any of my channels, failed in posting, or any other problems.
This app is reliable, always functioning, never disappoints with the reactions and features to customize for your job specific needs, and in all ways shapes and form been hands down 100% real time. I love how i can change my profile picture, name, workplace info, choose privacy and notification settings, can set myself as away, and all my notifications come in once I’m active, have a dark mode enabled (this saves my tired eyes first thing in the morning) and an all the way around fun place to communicate with others.
I don’t leave many reviews, and this is one of the only ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ reviews I’ve left. Thank you for everything your team and developers have done to streamline our success. You’re amazing!
Slack slacked in 2020
Look, I love/d Slack. I’ve been using it as my internal business communication tool for the past five years. I’ve also noticed in those past five years, Slack has barely innovated and as of recently, especially during 2020 when most applications like zoom, Google meet, and Microsoft teams have been booming with innovation in new ways of interacting in this new work from home work life. Now with the acquisition from salesforce, I truly feel like Slack is going to go down the drain and what was once the industry leader in communication has sat back on the couch, slacking, watching everybody else move forward. As of today, we are looking into other platforms outside of Slack due to the lack of innovation and buy out from sales force. An example of what I think is easy innovative feedback, we’ve been asking for voice clips to send both privately and in channels up to 2 to 5 minutes long so managers can leave a status update or important message or daily briefing first thing in the morning without having to type it all out and can do it on the go; nothing. It was nice while it lasted, slack. 👋
