The Slack

Slack is a new way to communicate with your team. It’s faster, better organized, and more secure than email. Slack is a distributed platform and during any given incident it is rare for all Slack teams to be affected. For this reason, we report our uptime as an average derived from the number of affected users. The Slack Academy will be open for enrolment soon. Sign up to get notified when doors open.

Slack replaced a single in-box with distinct chat channels, moved group discussions into a persistent chat format, and made all of these discussions searchable. For teams straining under e-mail. Slack’s free mode limits app integrations to 10. This roadblock goes away in the paid plans, and businesses can take full advantage of Slack’s more than 2,400 app integration possibilities.

Slack is a tool that enhances work group communications. It provides a platform for individuals and groups to chat live online and keep conversations organized and accessible from anywhere, anytime. Stanford Slack Grid, or Stanford Slack, is the enterprise version of Slack. It allows teams within Stanford to have separate, but connected, workspaces across the university.

With Stanford Slack it's easy to discover and join other workspaces that are central to your work, although some workspaces require approval to join. You'll also be able to send a direct message to almost anyone at Stanford.
