We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The integration with other applications is pretty good."
"The solution is quite intuitive and easy to use."
"My primary use case is for preparing presentations to teach, often on PowerPoint."
"The products are quite simple for the end-users to use, the up-time is very good, the product is practically maintenance-free, and the multi-layer security is excellent from the security standpoint."
"It's nice that it's an all-in-one solution and everything is all in one place."
"I love all of the applications being interlinked. I do not have to separately work on an independent system when it comes to file storage, email, and other tools."
"I like all of the features."
"Reliable without any glitches."
"Slack is a powerpack bundle of features that help small or large organizations to handle teams and their tasks."
"The most valuable feature is the screen sharing, which works well."
"The most valuable features are video conferencing and sharing content during meetings."
"Slack makes it easy for employees to contact each other and exchange documents or information."
"The most valuable feature for me was the different channels."
"With respect to being a clean and efficient communications platform, I think that it does the job quite well."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is communication between team members."
"If two people update the same file, it causes issues."
"I'm not sure if there are areas of improvement. For us, it's working quite well."
"In terms of improvement, it should have tutorials when you first have the opportunity to use it, to be able to really learn it."
"The online applications have limited functionality compared to the local applications."
"The one big problem with the solution is if you are presenting in Teams and someone puts their hand up, you don't get a notification. If you are running a meeting and just presenting you don't know that people have their hands up and want to ask a question."
"I started working a lot on Microsoft Teams and I find it a bit vast. It should be divided out a bit so that someone can use it for basic functionality, like audio, video, and calls. Then, if someone wants more advanced functionality for file sharing and team creation, and so on, they could use a separate app."
"In the next release, I would like to have a more intuitive tutorial."
"Could include integration with other single sign-on solutions."
"I would like to see the social sharing of blogs, announcements, or other news directly from the message corner."
"I would like the text in chat to be more customizable."
"I would like the in-meeting content sharing facility to be improved."
"I would like to see a special feature for multiple people to collaborate on a document, working on it at the same time."
"Slack does not have videoconferencing capabilities, which would have been nice."
"I have found it cumbersome to create and set up groups, or channels."
"Customization is something that Slack is lacking."
