User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
We use in our small law office. We had to write some of our own "best practice rules" (like phone message channels only get phone messages, no gifs in general, snooze when you aren't answering) but it's been a great tool for our office. Easy way to be sure you're keeping up with your team without getting in to email all the time. We love it because if person a has a question for person b, a send the question and b gets to answer when they have the time in their day. Minimize interruptions while also allowing the person with a question to say it when they're thinking about it. We love slack. It's AOL instant messenger for professionals. I do wish it was easier to upload images etc without the comments being a weird title.
First, my rant (feel free to skip): I was not pleased when Microsoft purchased Skype, and my fears were increasingly justified as I saw version release after version release further thrash GUI conventions (if Microsoft made light switches, down would turn the light on and up would turn it off...). Finally, the family decided to stop using Skype for our domestic and international communications needs. We switched to Slack... Second, my review: It took some getting used to, but Slack is now our family communication hub... we’ve got channels for making travel plans, sharing recipes, and even communicating while playing Minecraft (yes, I know, Microsoft...). Slack has not only replaced Skype, but is quickly replacing our need to use generic texting and e-mail. I’m still very fond of Discord, but who knows...!? I highly recommend slack. Delve into it. Learn it well, and perhaps you too will adopt it as your one comm app to rule them all! 5-stars. Hands down. Slack people: promise me you’ll never sell this to Microsoft when Team simply doesn’t grab enough market share, and they come knocking. Pretty please...
So awesome!! It’d be better though is Slack didn’t auto delete messages and hide them behind a paywall and would also be better if we had the ability to edit/delete messages a regardless of how much time has passed and free video/voice chat. If you don’t wanna spend money on video/voice chat or Spence money getting extra storage of messages, just use discord. It’s basically the same thing with a few slight differences like direct responses to a single text but like each text is a post and the replies could be comments on that message, for example. Again awesome app, loving the new dark mode and businesses, this app is perfect for you!!
The notifications are so quiet that even on full volume, I almost never hear them, which makes this app nearly useless. This is my biggest irritation. Second, it sometimes literally takes days for the app to recognize going from a dead zone to WiFi. During this time, I’ll get notifications, but they won’t load because I’m “offline.” I also can’t change my status during these times, so if I’ve been on vacation, or away for any other reason, I can’t change the status to say that I’m back in town. I’ve tried restarting the app, my phone, turning WiFi off and using data instead...nothing has worked. Since slack is the only app that has this problem, I’m inclined to believe it’s the app and not the phone. If these things could be changed, I would happily write a new and improved review.
This app a great tool that I have used many times in many companies. I work as a contracted graphic designer for multiple companies so it can get a bit hectic. When I am working, I use an iMac and I get my notifications immediately, which is great. I also have the app for my iPhone 6, which would be a nice convenience, yet my notifications almost always never come through on time, if at all. When I step away from my computer, I would expect the same immediacy that I get from my computer. Sometimes I will sit back down at my computer, only to realize I had multiple messages sent to me that I never received in an alert on my phone. Sometimes I will be away from my computer, and my phone will start dinging like a grandfather clock at noon with 5, 10, 15+ notifications that came through all at once. I will say my internet connection is great, and rarely have issues. I have no idea what the issue is which phone notifications, but it’s beyond terrible. I constantly restart the app and my phone. Nothing seems to fix this issue and it makes me want to pull my hair out. I just wish Slack could fix this notification issue with phones. It would make my life so much easier.
