I used Slack briefly during a period when my client’s Unified Communications group was searching for virtual team collaboration tools. They eventually selected Microsoft Teams but I for one, was impressed Slack.
Now that I am 100% virtual like half of the workforce, I thought I should get reacquainted with Slack.
Signing up for Slack was quite easy. The app is available on Google Play and the Apple Store. I downloaded to my Android phone to start off.
Once you’re in the app, whether on your desktop, mobile or tablet, using Slack is very simple. And although I have opened this post with the mobile device version, I am more inclined to use the desktop version. The reason is that I prefer a full-size keyboard vs typing on a screen. (Do detect any co-signing “Amens“?)
On the desktop, I get started by going to the Two Talk LPS Slack page.
So that’s it’s. I am ready to collaborate internally, or externally with clients, students and developers. What else are you using? Let me know! Let’s share ideas!
On a related note, have you noticed your networks seem a bit slow lately? I read that it was due to the increased web traffic from our work at home colleagues, more shopping online, etc. It’s a good thing the networks are built with this capacity in mind so we can stay connected! Stay safe!
