Plus, with all their available apps you can always stay connected to your team. You can download Slack apps for your computer, phone, or iPad. To see all the great options visit here.
2. All Communication is in One Place
Having all your communications in one place is a great benefit. No sorting through pizza coupons to find that very important conversation with your coworker. Or maybe you are like me and have 5 different email accounts and you’re tired of logging into multiple accounts. By using Slack, you have everything in one spot and will save your team a lot of time.

Slack features a wonderful search box. You can search by word or phrase, person, starred conversation, mention, or any combination of those. So it’s truly easy to find that message from last month when you really need to finish your project on time.
4. Share Files and Images
We shares lots of files and images and with our board members. You can easily upload that document to a channel, member, or even slackbot to access it later for yourself. Plus, all files are searchable to help you find them later on. Slack also has integrations for Google Drive, Dropbox, and several other popular options.
5. Customize Notifications
You can choose to be notified of everything or just the most important things! This is a sanity saver for a lot of teams. You can choose all activity, direct messages and highlights, or nothing.
I also love how you can set unavailable hours, (you have to sleep at some time, or just to spend much needed time with your family). We all need to unplug from time to time. Slack also has an away setting in the app if you really need to totally unplug.
