    Pros/cons: Using Slack for business messaging


    By Dennis O'Reilly

    For many in business, the primary form of communication is still email and to a much lesser extent, text messaging.

    To improve communications and collaboration among teams, there are dozens of digital collaboration tools. But the one that's gotten the most attention recently is Slack, a business-centric messaging system that nicely complements traditional forms of communication.

    The full text of this column is posted at windowssecrets.com/best-practices/proscons-using-slack-for-business-messaging/ (opens in a new window/tab).

    Columnists typically cannot reply to comments here, but do incorporate the best tips into future columns.

    The other thing about Slack is that all entries are permanent. As I understand it, messages can't be recalled, deleted, etc. Any misspeak is permanent.

    Exactly. Disappointed that a Window's Secrets article on a business-related software app does not address the security of the messages and discussions. It's why we don't use google+ or other similar apps for calendaring and team discussions. Was expecting some discussion when the article mentioned "common legal tasks such as due diligence, discovery, and contract drafts".

    Otherwise an interesting and informative article about something I heard about, but didn't know what it was.
