Ask DN: (how) do you use Slack?

    We never really used email - so Slack for us was to replace messaging using iMessage/Text and Facebook Chat. To be fair, Facebook Chat was actually very robust and suited our needs to a point, but since it's integrated with Facebook it was hard to not get distracted by other non-work-related messages.

    You can break up projects really easily in Slack, so your feeds don't get diluted with comments/messages about other projects.

    We connected our rooms to Trello to add tasks really easily. Set up a cute personal Slackbot that responds to certain words and phrases with Drake lyrics (design from the 6! aha). And it's very fast and quick to use, especially with attachments.
