Slack is experiencing some connectivity issues — please stand by. Check
Whether they’re happening in person, over the phone, or in a channel, Slack makes it possible to host effective meetings. Below are a few tips and tools to help your meetings flow seamlessly.
Host recurring meetings in Slack
If you attend a lot of meetings each week, try hosting some of the routine ones in a Slack channel. Daily or weekly standups, weekly project check-ins, or quick team meetings are all good options. To help you kickoff your meetings, set a channel reminder for a specific day and time.
Record and save meeting notes
Posts work great for recording meeting notes and sharing a meeting agenda with teammates. You can even enable shared editing to let others collaborate with you.
Meet with remote teammates
With voice and video calls in Slack, you can communicate with teammates, no matter where they are in the world. Workspaces on paid plans can accommodate group calls (for 15 people total), and workspaces on any plan can make one-to-one calls.
Connect and share
Slack helps keep communication across your organization transparent and inclusive. Below are some strategies to help everyone in your Slack workspace stay informed.
Teamwork and communication happen in channels — open, organized spaces for messages, files, tools, and people. By using public channels, you give other teammates a view into work happening across the company. Public channels are open for all members to join, and shared content is searchable. They're also easy to spot by the hashtag icon next to their names.
Use announce-only channels
Announce-only channels are a great way to broadcast information to everyone in Slack. Owners and admins can even limit who can post to this type of channel to make it easier for people to know when important company information is shared.
Encourage employee engagement
Public “ask-me-anything” channels serve as an open line of communication between leadership teams and employees. They empower employees to ask questions and start discussions, as well as for leaders to give insight into decision making.
Centralize work in Slack
By bringing more of your work into Slack, you can spend less time juggling and jumping between tools. The fewer distractions you’re faced with throughout the day, the more you can focus on work that matters.
To help you stay on top of your schedule, you can connect your Google Calendar or Microsoft Outlook Calendar to Slack. Get meeting and event reminders, respond to event notifications, and even join a remote meeting right from your workspace.
