Whatssap, iMessage, Telegram, among other apps used to be the 1st option for group chats. Nowadays, those are on the downfall since Slack came along- 3 million of students, co-worker, and interns, use the app each day.
The app offers you the ability to create and join different chat rooms, how to share a GIF or the shortcut to your favorite emoji. But Slack actually has a ton of cool features you may not know about. If your focus it’s to get more productive and get the most of the application, here are some tips you MUST know.
1. Notification Settings
If your organization leans heavily on Slack, you may find yourself getting tons and tons of notifications. You can make that experience less annoying by customizing exactly which types of notifications shoot you a ping, what sound plays when you are notified, and MORE. And you can always change things, so if you’re in the middle of a tight deadline, you can temporarily switch off notifications and turn them back on later- make it personal.
2. Do Not Disturb
At the bottom of the notifications section of Slack’s preferences is the following gem: “Do Not Disturb”, which allows customizing your notifications for bed routines earlier. Take advantage of this one.
3. Change The Default Download Location
Instead of downloading files to your Downloads folder. You have the option to create a new folder by the name of “Slack Downloads” or under your company’s name . Also as another option, you can send the files and photos you downloaded from Slack to your Documents, Desktop, or another destination.
4. Edit A Message
We all had felt the regret for not proofreading before sending a message and the phrase came out to be the complete opposite of what you intended. No worries typos, wrong links, and incorrect information can all be edited. Just place your mouse over a message and then tap the “…” icon on the right corner. There, you have the option to edit- without deleting a message.
5. Make A Bulleted List
If you need to list something in Slack, a bulleted list organizes it nicely. To do this, on a Mac, tap the “Option” and “8” buttons at the same time. On a Windows machine, it’s “Alt” and “0149”.
Now that we learned more about the new features of Slack, let’s put it into use.
