Here are some features of Slack which makes it more than just a simple chat application, and in fact the whole Project Management Tools. Your workspace consists of channels: one for messages, tools, and files. Channels bring the right people together with all appropriate information.
- Channels can be based on anything – a team, a project, or even office location – and you can make as many as you need.
- Co-channel connecting two separate organizations together, allowing you to work with external partners and contractors without having to leave Slack.
A direct message (DM) and direct message group (group DMS) is best for ad-hoc conversations that do not require the entire channel to weigh in DMS can be useful in some way:
- A replacement for in-person, conversational 1-1
- An easy way to catch up with teammates
- Fast and simple way to pop the question
