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.

We use Slack for general communication, conference calls, and sharing screens because we have people working from different countries.

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.

We’d like it to have more capability for everyone to work on one doc in real time all at once.

I think Slack could add additional features without making the solution slower or more difficult to use.

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.

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.
