Slack is a great way to bring all your communications in one place. Its interface is simple and clear.
What is Slack? Slack is a messaging software for users who want to streamline their communications on a single platform. Designed with businesses in mind, Slack's instant messaging software allows teams to organize conversations in specific groups and chat rooms (i.e. by project, team, or topic). The app was created by Slack Technologies and is available on every device. In this article, we discuss some of Slack’s main features, as well as some additional information.
Here are some of the Slack app main features:
Users are invited to join conversations through a specific URL or via invitation sent by a team administrator. All content shared within a conversation (such as files, keywords, and individual users) is completely searchable, making it easier than ever to keep track of how a conversation progresses. Another great thing about Slack it that if you are not sure how to use a specific functionality, there are official tutorials you can follow.
Slack has a history of data breaches that occured in 2015. The company reassures that all data (at rest and in transit) is encrypted and that they use tools like Slack Enterprise Key Management (Slack EKM), audit logs, two-factor authentication, and integrations with top data loss prevention (DLP) providers. As always, we recommend avoiding sharing personal information and sensible customer data over the app.
Slack is available in both free and paid versions, depending on a team's needs. The free version only includes basic features such as two-person calls, 10 app integrations, and 5 GB of storage. The paid versions start at €6.25
