About Lesson

Is Slack free to use?

Slack offers both free and paid plans. The free plan only allows the use of a basic version of Slack (only 10 App integrations, no access to the use of Workflows or Slack Connect, etc.). Slack is free for NGO’s with less than 250 employees, and offers an 85% discount for organisations with more than 250 employees.

Can I use Slack on my mobile device?

Yes, Slack is available on both iOS and Android devices. You can download the Slack app from the App Store or Google Play Store to access your boards on your mobile device.

What are the Channels for?

Slack organises conversations into specific locations called channels. Channels bring order and clarity to work: you can create them for any project, topic or team. With the right people and information in one place, teams can share ideas, make decisions and move tasks forward.

What can I do in Slack?

From sending direct messages to colleagues in the workspace to integrating external apps, Slack offers many possibilities. Among them we highlight the creation of Channels to organise your projects, the use of a personalised communication style (emojis, audios, videos, meetings…) and the creation of workflows.
