Messaging App

Slack is a powerful messaging app that requires virtually no setup. It’s 100% web-based and ready to go from the moment you create an account. All you have to do is invite your team members to join.

You can set up both private and public channels, but it also allows direct messages between users like most messaging apps. It also enables calling and screen sharing.

Slack allows you to customize notifications in many ways. You can integrate Google Calendar to notify your team of events or even set Slack to tell you when a particular keyword appears.

These are just a few of the ways you can customize this full-featured communication app.
