    Slack For Dummies Cheat Sheet

    Slack allows you to easily communicate and collaborate with your colleagues as well as people outside of your organization. As a result, Slack drastically reduces your reliance upon email. But those capabilities are just the tip of Slack’s iceberg. Slack channels allow organizations to be far more transparent. Think of them as buckets of information around a central topic. Organizations using Slack create multiple channels around different topics. Slack also allows for easy video calling, screen sharing, document sharing, and collaboration. Thanks to more than 2,000 apps, you can create polls, surveys, and much more. You can also save a great deal of time by automating manual tasks via apps and Slack’s new Workflow Builder.
