Where Work Happens
Back to rock climbing—a good second will always give the lead at least some slack until the lead starts descending—triggered either by a fall or the lead calling belay!”. In the Slack Configuration page, enable the feeds to be notified in the Slack channel. Slack automatically indexes and archives everything that goes on within a team’s account.

As its watchful bots continue to circle, archiving and analyzing, retrieving and praising, the company will be forced to acknowledge that the true value of Slack lies not in its ability to enable productivity, but rather to measure it. These functions aren’t so different from those of previous chat apps, but Slack makes them look good (a friendly interface) and run better (speedy, reliable, with a strong search function).
I’ve been using Slack for work for at least the last 2-3 years, mostly on a Mac. To help get you started, this set of short videos will show you how to get your team set up and provide some useful tips for working together in Slack.

Slack is a platform for team communication: everything in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. Offering instant messaging, document sharing and knowledge search for modern teams. Slack offers private groups, direct messaging and persistent chat rooms organized by topic.
Slack also indexes the content of every document that’s uploaded, which means users can search for keywords contained in specific PDFs or Word documents. The search features in most email platforms are not robust enough to handle the needs of growing organizations, which is why Slack has developed its own contextual search tools.
