I set up Slack teams for three groups I am part of. Will they take to it? I get the feeling it won’t happen right away… probably six months from now when they hear that their little niece is using it to organize her soccer team or Girl Scout troop.
How it works
You get an email for a team you are on. Like say – I don’t know you are getting married. Unless you are eloping, you are on a team… and your team is on a journey. Fasten your seat belt.
Slack does a lot… but the best thing is channels. So #centerpieces – moms, there you go.
Brother and soon to be brother-in-law have strong opinions about craft beer? #craftbeer_to_be _served. Have at it fellas.
#expenses – Ooh.. Let’s make this one private and invite in only the people that need to be there.
That’s it.. that’s Slack. Does a bunch of other shiz. Send documents. Direct messaging. But the main deal.. you don’t have to read every dog gone email just because someone thinks it’s important and shot it out to the whole group.
