Why We Use Slack

  • Separate Areas for Different Topics: Conversations are organized by category.
  • Search Capabilities: Trying to remember a tip or find a link someone shared with you months ago? In Slack you can search your entire conversation history for a keyword. It's amazing!
  • Unread Notifications: You can choose to get alerts about the topics most important to you.
  • No more missed messages: When we had different group pages for each challenge, member hub, etc conversations were often missed or buried under other notifications. Now, you can see everything that's going on in one place, and you won't have to worry about missing things because Facebook changes it's algorithm or (or in case FB decides you only want to see cat photos in your feed because you liked one cat photo).
  • Threaded conversations: Organize and keep track of your conversations by topic. 
  • Privacy: Anything shared in Slack is not publicly searchable.
  • Private Groups: Locked channels allow us to invite members to private channels specifically for the challenge or course they're working on. 
  • Direct Messages: Make friends and have private conversations with other members. 
  • Document Sharing: We can pin documents and resources to different channels and import workbooks directly into Slack.
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Quick Set-up
  • Easy To Use
