8. USE INTEGRATED APPS

  • Asana, Trello, Zapier, Hootsuite — it’s likely that you use a project management tool of some sort so it’s helpful that Slack include integration for all of these apps. You can create new tasks and edit existing tasks, change due dates, and create a more seamless collaboration.
  • HubSpot — with the HubSpot app, you can turn important Slack messages into a HubSpot task or ticket, you can associate a task or ticket with a contact, company, or deal in HubSpot, tasks and tickets created within Slack are automatically synced with HubSpot, and you can receive HubSpot notifications within Slack.
  • Google Drive, Box, Microsoft OneDrive — you can use all of these apps to share and manage access to your files from within Slack. It makes file sharing extremely seamless when you don’t have to leave Slack to share and access documents.
  • Zoom, Microsoft Teams Calls, Cisco Webex Meetings — Slack has made it easy to instantly start or join meetings directly from within the app using both its own video conferencing and your other favorite video conferencing apps.
  • Giphy — who doesn’t love using gifs in everyday conversation? With the Giphy app, you can quickly and easily search for and send gifs, all from a simple command, “/giphy .”
  • RSS — as a frequent RSS user, learning about this app has really changed my content curation and my feed. I use RSS on a regular basis to curate posts about marketing, design, social media, and company culture to share with HIPB2B’s followers. It’s an incredibly useful tool, making curation a much quicker and less tedious task.
