My thanks to Glenn Fleishman for sponsoring Six Colors this week as a way of promoting the new edition of his ebook, Take Control of Slack. Here’s Glenn to explain himself:
One morning, we all awoke and found ourselves part of a Slack group. I may be exaggerating, but it seems like Slack came out of nowhere to be the group messaging and archiving tool of choice, especially for offices and organizations with a spread-out set of employees or members.
I wrote the ebook Take Control of Slack to fit a range of people who use Slack regularly, sometimes constantly, and find themselves wanting to better understand its features without devoting hours to sorting them all out.
The ebook is useful to people at all level of Slack experience, and goes far behind walking you through options and features. Instead, I explain how Slack works and how to get the best use out of it, whether it’s controlling notifications so you aren’t overwhelmed (or underwhelming) by updates. It’s full of tips, like pressing up-arrow in a desktop Slack app to edit you previously posted message.
This ebook is fully up to date with all the tweaks and refinement Slack added, from video conferencing and screen sharing to its new logo and branding. Take Control of Slack is an ebook that will help you achieve mastery to reduce frustration, improve efficiency, and focus less on Slack and more on what you’re trying to get done.
