45 Slack Hacks to Boost Productivity [Infographic]

Published: Apr 27, 2020

Slack is now standard issue for desk-based employees who need to ping ideas, information, and documents to each other all day. Today, 600,000 businesses run their internal communications on Slack, with around 12 million Slack users @-ing each other around the world.

Getting started with Slack is not much more difficult than getting to grips with a regular social media platform or consumer-oriented messaging service. You’ll be given a sign-in to your workplace community, and within this community, there will be channels (chats with selected members) and private messages. But there’s so much more you can do (and do it faster) if you have a good handle on keyboard shortcuts and alternative methods of getting to where you want to be.

For a quick primer on where to access these expert Slack cheats and shortcuts, work through the below infographic from NetCredit. Keep it bookmarked because you’re sure to need more and more of these hidden functions the deeper you get into your new role.
