If you’ve not yet heard about Slack then you should take a look. The company says it’s, “on a mission to make your working life simpler, more pleasant and more productive” and with the release of Slack it has been true to its bold words.
In a nutshell, Slack has a powerful and extensible platform that helps manage projects and teams by keeping all your files, messages and documents in one place.
The software enables teams to collaborate across iOS devices, the new Mac app and as web apps for other platforms. There’s dozens of features too – from voice and video message service integration to project and task management, to file sharing, Dropbox, Twitter, Google services integration and more.
One thing it does especially well is making it clear who is working on what. In use, any user can create channels for projects, groups or topics and participants can exchange files, messages, comments, images, video.
Slack also offers a notification system to let you know if anyone mentions a word or phrase. You gain complete history and search capabilities within each channel so it’s easy to find that in a particular message or item.
Slack is simply one of the best and most intuitive team or project collaboration solutions we’ve seen yet.
Best of all, Slack’s dedicated Mac app integrates with OS X’s Notifications system, so you never miss an important item.
