Let Explore Slack As Perfect Way Of Project Management

What is Slack?

Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate.

Working in Slack

Slack helps you work in a more connected, flexible, and inclusive way.


Slack makes access to your colleagues easy — message anyone inside or outside your organization and collaborate just like you would in person. People can work in dedicated spaces called channels that bring together the right people and information.


Slack supports asynchronous work. When work is organized in channels, no matter your location, time zone, or function, you can access the information you need on your own time. Ask questions, get caught up, and share updates without having to coordinate schedules.


In Slack, everyone in an organization has access to the same shared and searchable information. When teams work together in channels, information can be shared with everyone at once, helping keep teams stay aligned and make decisions more quickly.

Teams & Workspaces

Slack allows businesses, communities, and other organizations to create a private, dedicated workspace complete with a custom URL. After a simple signup process, you’ll be able to invite your team to join and start getting work done. For small to medium-sized companies, you’ll likely need just one workspace organized by public and private channels to meet all your needs, but Slack also has features to help enterprises manage multiple workspaces if that makes more sense (more on that below).

Company-Wide and Private Messaging

Slack messaging is grouped into channels and direct messages to organize conversations and replace communications that might otherwise be scattered across emails, text messages, or in person meetings. Public channels are open to all members of a workspace and can cover everything from different marketing and sales operations to random discussions and streams of memes (if you’re company likes to have as much fun as we do). You can also create Private channels in Slack to help break down large teams into their relevant working groups or restrict sensitive conversations or work materials to relevant team members. And Slack allows private messages, sent directly to other team members, so you can have one-off communications or keep things organized between you and specific members of your team.


Integration with third-party services is one of Slack’s most powerful features. These let you use some of your favorite apps right within Slack – so you don’t have to keep switching tabs, remember where that shared link went to, or open up another application just to quickly double check something. Some of Slack’s major integrations include:
  • Google Drive
  • Dropbox
  • Heroku
  • Github
  • Zendesk
  • Zapier

Why should my company use Slack?

Excellent question. Slack is a new way for your entire company to communicate. It replaces email with something faster, better organized and more secure. Instead of one-off email chains, all your communication is organized into channels that are easy to create, join and search. When there’s a channel for everything going on at your company, everyone knows exactly where to go to get work done. For more reading on the topic, we recommend checking out our Resources Library.

How can we use Slack effectively?

The key to Slack success is channels. By creating a channel for all your projects, your teams, your offices, your departments—everything you’re doing at work—you create a space for every conversation to happen. And because channels are easy to join and create, Slack can adapt to meet changing needs. If someone new joins a project, you can simply add them to the channel and they scroll up to read through old conversations. When it’s time to start something new, create a new channel and invite the right people. To learn more, read up on how to collaborate effectively in channels.
