Exchange information with coworkers and collaborate on projects, keep group files handy and post announcements in a group with this simple chat tool
Teams in all companies need to be connected when on the job, not just through information exchange, but through files as well. Nowadays, this often determines the success of a business, so it is understandable why you would want your employees to be able to communicate efficiently.
With Slack, a lightweight and fairly simple to understand messaging app, you can do just that and more, as it provides you with all the communication features and functions that can keep the workflow going.
Swift and intuitive configuration
In terms of initial setup, after the quick and uneventful installation, the tool launches automatically, and you will need to input your team’s domain, or define one if it doesn’t exist already.
Subsequently, accounts can be created, and all employees with an email address from the same domain can register and confirm their address, then connect to it and begin exchanging information.
Encourage teams to work together and exchange information or files
Being a multi-platform application, Slack can be used from mobile phones, tablets, iOS devices and Mac computers, as well as from the web browser, as you need only specify the account credentials to login.
The ‘Team Directory’ will display all members while, on the left-side panel, you can find available ‘Channels’ and ‘Private Groups’, or create new ones. At the same time, you can view the coworkers available for ‘Direct Messages’.
In the ‘All Files’ section, you can find the documents that have been shared by team members, on various channels, allowing you to leave comments for them. Similarly, you can upload files yourself, being able to find them in the ‘Your Files’ area.
A flexible messaging tool for teams and coworkers
All in all, Slack proves to be a helpful utility that companies can resort to for supporting teammates in collaborating on a common project more easily and on the go, regardless of location or device.
