About Slack

Slack is a real-time messaging, archive and conversation search tool. It is designed to make working life simpler and more productive by removing the need for internal email and inefficient file sharing methods.

Slack brings desktop and mobile messaging into one place — with seamless file sharing, conversation syncing, and notification options. It is simple and easy to use. Users can create different conversation groups with customizable privacy settings to ensure just the right people see them.
