Where work happens

About Slack

In the remote work space, Slack is both the most loved and disliked product.

Slack is a modern interpretation of a chat room. With different channels, keywords and support for a wide range of formatting options and attachment, it makes communicating with others extremely smooth and easy.

It's sometimes disliked by remote workers for it's feel of urgency. A new chat message triggers a range of notification–sounds, icon changes, push notifications, ... that aren't excactly subtle. It can often drag you right out of deep work, or simply send you a push notification at 1am at night.
