I love you! You're like my dad in technology. Whenever I need to know something about any software, I go to your channel! THANK YOU!!!!

I'm trying to figure out why everyone loves Slack so much. I've been on teams that use Slack. To me, it is a source of constant interruptions and distractions when I'm trying to focus on work. But I'm trying to keep an open mind, especially since Steve Dotto - a guy whose opinion I respect - likes it so much.

I think that its because maybe your configuration is off you can really choose what you want and dont want to see. I like that fact that all project documentation is in one space and is able to be hot keyed. I mean working courtesy goes as said if I feel like the WHOLE group dosent need to know I wont broadcast any messages or call meetings that are not needed.

Hi Steve, great into to slack! Quick question, what do you use to record / create your video where you are seamlessly showing yourself, your screen in the background and then your mobile view? Impressive!
I'd love to know that too..

Personally I rate Twist ahead of Slack. The apps have cleaner designs and keep direct messages separate. Paid accounts are cheaper at $5 per user per month and give unlimited storage and search history. The 3 pane layout of Channels -> Threads -> Chat allows for vastly superior organisation compared to just Channels -> Chat. Compared to the text-filled mess of Slack navigation, Twist is seriously good looking and intuitive. To me Twist looks like a version of Slack a few years from now. I strongly recommend anyone looking for organisational work software give Twist a try before Slack.

come on dude...you are taking up at least 3/4 of the screen with your face....can't continue to watch you...im here to watch the program before I buy it...NOW I am not...terrible...one of the worst I have seen in years....ridiculous... absolutely ridiculous...

If only I could get my CEO and his Team to understand Slack could cut our losses probably 50%. The CEO is my best friend, but too busy trying to keep things rolling he has no time to look at 'my fantasies'. He has been in Business over 30 years, but uses no Software but Windows Computers everyone has. How to get this organization to understand the POWER of Slack?????

How many members can you have in slack? or is it unlimited?

slack is a waste of time! what's the point when most businesses use 365 these days. within 365 you have groups that were specifically designed for this that have all these features and more that's fully integrated with outlook and as its part of 365 you don't pay anything as its part you your user cal. whats the point of using another thing of things when groups is part of what you use daily within the office suite? goups looks and feels much better (you see them within outlook, contains tasks, external sharing, yammer, outlook email for the group, sharepoint site for the group, permission model, onedrive for business for the group and more) to me slack is best for developers within a team building code. but even that you have teams in 365 ;)

Does slack support screen sharing? What is the size limit per file on file sharing?
dottotech (7 months ago)
It depends on the conferencing tool, for screen sharing, Not sure about size limit, we typically use Dropbox or Google Drive for file sharing.

Are you asking if there is a native integration, a quick search should tell you.
Karyme Delgado (8 months ago)
Hi! I have a doubt so what's the difference with whats'app? with it you can communicate with all your contacts worldwide who uses whats'app, send them files, calls, video conferences, messages (one to one or to groups too) and have quick replies, too. You can also use this app in your computer too. One of my best friend recommended me this app but I want to figure out more advantages to start using it with my team too

You really resemble a character from Rick and Morty lol
Me and my team use Discord. They are both very similar in the way they work and look, you can even call Discord a Slack clone. But with discord you can add friends outside your organisation, invite people to server/groups and find new people and communities. This means that it is very identical to Slack when in comes to working with your team, but you can also use it with friends and find communities. One more thing I really think is better with Discord is that dosen't take as much CPU power as Slack, so it runs lighter. You also get a lot more without paying.
Arpan Datta (5 months ago)
How is Discord or even Slack different from any group chat? You can even use Facebook to add multiple users to a single chat and share files.

The guy is taking time to create content to share with others, and you're just part of the internet keyboard warrior cesspool that HAS to say negative things about it. I'm sure this is a reflection of who you are at the core. Sad.....

Hi , I want to include a bot as team member in slack and that bot can provide information when any team member required some information is there any way to do it? :)
mhzprayer (1 year ago)
Yes, you can freely create an app on api.slack.com, "Start Building", "Create New App". After creation you can always get back by api.slack.com > Build > Your Apps. You can add a bot to your app, and you can go into Event Subscriptions to subscribe your bot to events that happen in a channel he's invited into. If your bot monitors the "messages.channels" event, it can send a message to a web endpoint that you build. If you can build a web application somewhere that uses OAuth authentication, you can process the requests (containing the Slack messages) sent from your Slack app, make decisions or provide information and post it back to the Slack channel. Its quite a bit of work, but its possible if you can write an OAuth web app.

Only the most amazing thing ever! Hype? pshaw
Leona Rodenkirchen (1 year ago)
How can I set up an overview of multiple teams on Slack like you did? To manage different teams I always need to log out of one team and then log back into another team. That's pretty annoying since I also only get notifications from one team at a time this way.
Leona Rodenkirchen (1 year ago)
Actually, I just figured it out. Thanks for the cool video!
Leona Rodenkirchen (1 year ago)
I use both. Is it possible only with the desktop app?
dottotech (1 year ago)
Are you in the desktop app? That allows fast switching

I cant seem to find how to sort messages in slack. The view defaults to to oldest posts at the top.
dottotech (1 year ago)
I want the same thing, but we can't figure out how to do that
Melody Chui (1 year ago)
But I want to use the apps for personal usage. Also, I want privacy.
dottotech (1 year ago)
Slack is not a personal tool, it is a communications manager, built to manage your conversations
Melody Chui (1 year ago)
Thanks for the tips!
Steve Gill (1 year ago)
Can slack send sms messages to contacts, and receive sms messages back? ie keep sms, mms conversations that you would have in your mobile phone, within slack?
dottotech (1 year ago)
No only messages in slack

Sam Grima (1 year ago)
Hey Steve! Great video! I think you might want to consider taking care of those 392 emails and 21 text messages that you haven't looked at yet. Hopefully Slack is actually, "making your life easier."
Sue Elvins (1 year ago)
does Slack support HighRise CRM? I just started to check this out to see what it is and picking up on how to use quickly. I will be looking how to bring in what is currently being used for side applications but I am quite interested hear your comments on my question.

Hello, Steve. Outoff topic. Please apologize me. How do you put the screen of your computer as your background of your video? I you like to do that with my videos. Thank you for any help. And, by the way, I am already using Slack for the management of my team and I am very happy with it. Congratulation for your video. It is very good. Prof Marcelo Roseira.

Can't believe this is a $3.8b company. It's Microsoft and Google's complete shit chat tools that have allowed this to grow. Good for Slack.
Shonna Martinez (2 years ago)
Hello Steve, great video. I write to you with hope of finding a program that will help my department grow. I have a call center of 5 reps that work from home. I need to be able to train and shadow my reps while they are taking calls. Do you feel Slack can offer this for me? If Slack can share recorded calls for training, than I have found the winner to help grow my department.
Kimberley Thomas (2 years ago)
Steve, this was great! I'm taking the lead on recommending Slack for my team who tend to be averse to anything new. Our goal is to decrease emails and increase productivity and project manage. If you have any additional tips for me to help "sell" it in, that would be great. I may do a demo to show them how it works.
Trevor Kelley (2 years ago)
Love Steve Dotto got me gonig big on evernote hopefully slack works just as well.
