Cons
I would like to see the social sharing of blogs, announcements, or other news directly from the message corner.The only area of concern that I have is with the inability to preview received documents without having to download them first.The mobile app needs improvement. It consistently misses notifications.Notifications are not as good as they could be (especially for mobile).Slack could add additional and better integrations.
