About Lesson

Slack has many different functions that we will be looking at in the following lessons. For now, here is a summary of Slack’s main functions.


  • Slack connects: As well as being able to communicate quickly and directly with members of your workspace, you can also work in a secure space with people outside your company. You will be able to communicate with members of other organisations in a secure way in which they will not have access to the information shared in your workspace.
  • Channels: Channels are tools to help you better organise your work. You can create as many channels as you need, dedicating each one to a task or project of your work.
  • Canvas: Slack canvas is a simple tool for colleagues to collaborate, create, collect and share information with the people who need to know.
  • Boards: Slack also provides the opportunity to meet via call or video call with your colleagues, without the need for external tools.
  • Messaging: Slack allows you to send individual as well as group messages to your colleagues. You can personally write to everyone in your workspace or create group conversations with them.
  • Clips: In addition to the traditional messaging offering, Slack also allows you to record videos and send audios in your work channels.
  • Accesibility: Slack is also accessible to all types of people, and allows you to tailor its interface and features to the person using it.

Work Optimization

  • Applications and integrations: Slack allows you to connect and integrate different external tools to improve the work experience. There are many tools that can be integrated into Slack, including Gmail, OneDrive, Zoom, and even Twitter.
  • Work Flow: Workflows in Slack take care of routine and repetitive tasks, so you can get answers, approvals, etc. with much less effort.
  • Searches: Thanks to its search system, Slack gives you easy access to all your intellectual capital, so you can retrieve conversations, files and much more.
  • Sharing files and collaborating on documents: Share and work directly on files securely and without leaving the application, and organise conversations around those files.
