Third Time’s the Charm for Slack
Working efficiently in community teams can be challenging. I’ve joined a new committee for my local square dance community, and the chair strongly advocates using Slack over emails for sharing information. As previously noted with a different committee, Slack didn’t seem very useful. Maybe this time it will work?
From what I can see, he has laid out separate folders for separate conversations (channels), which I like and had set up for the other community group. I also see that there are a number of people who have joined the conversation but do not participate, eerily similar to the other group’s engagement.
[Update six months later Feb 2018]: Slack is extremely useful for retaining information and making it easily searchable through indexing, even months later. Sometimes conversation get off-topic but that is a flaw of the people and not of the service.
