Slack is an internal communication application designed to facilitate dialogue in team activities. The platform chat is divided into private messages and group messages (so-called "channels"). These can be broken down by departments, projects or subjects to organize team planning.
Slack is available for desktops by site or program, and in-app for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones. Check out how to access the main features of the PC app that promises to increase team productivity.
