Slack helps project managers run projects efficiently without compromising quality. Learn how you can use Slack to keep your entire project team (and stakeholders) in the loop at all times — without overloading them with unnecessary emails and meetings.
Why manage projects in Slack?
Group the right people and information together with project-specific channels.
Connect your project management tools and spend less time switching between multiple interfaces.
Make it easy to for the whole team to keep up with project updates and next steps by sharing this information in project channels.
Share project resources, files, and deliverables with your team and get feedback in the moment.
🛠 Spend less time switching between multiple tools and windows.
If you use project management software like Asana or Trello, you can connect your tools with Slack to get direct notifications within your project channels.
🤖 Put Slackbot to work!
Try automating your team’s status updates or any other tasks your team does routinely. For example, ask Slackbot to /remind you and your team to share what you're working on or any potential blockers preventing work from moving forward.
Make it easy to stay informed
Share regular updates and meeting notes in project channels using a standard format so they’re easy to scan. When you have important updates, call the attention of team members and User Groups with @-mentions and ask them to confirm receipt with emoji reactions.
Create posts to document action items and use checkboxes to help you track progress. Allow others to edit your post so they can record when their work is complete.
Share files & get feedback
Keep all your work and the discussion in one place. Share files and documents that need your team’s input or approval in project channels. Comments are threaded so all feedback stays attached to the original file.
Connect Slack to file sharing services you may already be using like Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive so that your team has access to the most recent version of any file. Your original sharing preferences are preserved in Slack, so you can share without compromising security.
Slack apps for project management
Trello is a collaborative task and project management service that uses Lists and Cards to organize team projects. Receive updates right in Slack when activity occurs on projects you’re tracking.
/todo is a to-do list for your Slack team. Install /todo to turn any conversation in Slack into its own to-do list that participants can read and edit.
