USE Together Blog

USE Together integration for Slack is now available!

Today, we announce that USE Together is now available on Slack. Communication is smoother when all your tools are connected together, so you can use all your apps easily from one place.

What is Slack?

Slack is a collaboration tool that allows you to connect and communicate efficiently with your team. It brings all the communication together in just one place. Slack also lets you integrate tools like Skype, Twitter or Evernote.

With Slack, you can create a workspace and invite all your teammates to join it. Your workplace is a shared hub where members of your team communicate and collaborate easily. Slack is a great tool for small, medium and big companies.

On Slack, your workspace is divided into different sections: channels, messages, search and notifications.

  • Channels: A channel is a single place for messages, tools and files shared between you and your team, organized around any subject you want. There are two types of channel: Public channels (open to your entire workspace), private channels and shared channels.
  • Messages: You can share a message in a channel or send someone a direct message, it’s private and secure.
  • Search: With the search field in the upper-right corner of Slack, you can quickly find all you need.
  • Notifications: When something needs your attention, Slack warns you about it. You can receive notification on your desktop, your mobile device or by email.

Slack helps teams to improve their productivity and have a better communication.
