Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Its intuitive design makes it easy to use and understand, hence we do not have a need to spend much on educating our teams.""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."

More Slack Pros »

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the communication events.""The integration with Teams is the biggest value for us. In fact, it has only become more valuable now that it has integration with Teams. Teams allows you to stream, so that's good.""The design of the solution is its most valuable feature.""It's really easy to use the solution.""The initial setup was simple and straightforward.""The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."

Cons
"The only area of concern that I have is with the inability to preview received documents without having to download them first.""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."

More Slack Cons »

"This solution would be improved if it was well integrated with other communication applications.""The solution must be able to stream by itself, without integration, the same way that you are able to do it on Facebook Live, Instagram, etc. Streaming must be embedded into it.""Yammer should be able to integrate with Microsoft products, such as Outlook.""We tried to integrate into SharePoint, but it was not really efficient.""The product seems to just add to the complexity of using existing tools.""The way you want to control the communication could be an issue. It depends on what kind of company you are. We are a public company, and there are some regulations that we need to comply with. Its ease of use can be an issue for a company because anybody can subscribe and use it. There are many competitors that are overlapping. Since Microsoft bought Yammer, it tends to be in the shadow. It is not put in the front from the service perspective."
