"The feature that I have found most valuable is communication between team members."
"Slack is a really easy collaboration tool to use and many companies are adopting this popular tool."
"The product has the ability to scale."
"You can create channels between teams internally and externally, which is great. There is a lot of security with Slack internal, which is what I value."
"With respect to being a clean and efficient communications platform, I think that it does the job quite well."
"It's valuable for announcements and communicating between team members."
"We use Slack for general communication, conference calls, and sharing screens because we have people working from different countries."
"The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."
"Customization is something that Slack is lacking."
"There could be a read function so that when you send a message, instead of the other person having to add a reaction, you know that the message went through."
"We’d like it to have more capability for everyone to work on one doc in real time all at once."
"The way groups are created on slack could be improved. Once you create a group of people, you can't add additional people unless you convert it to a channel."
"I think Slack could add additional features without making the solution slower or more difficult to use."
"I would like to be able to do live streaming on Slack. Slack allows Slack huddle where you can do a group call, but it is not very well-designed. I'm not sure if it is going very well, but live streaming is one thing that I would definitely love to see. When you use Zoom, I like how you can run webinars. If we could do that through Slack, it would become an all-integrated platform. I would also like to be able to schedule meetings using Slack, similar to Zoom."
"I have found it cumbersome to create and set up groups, or channels."
"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."
