Pros

Love Slack and would recommend to anyone to change over to it, the integration to other products is also really good.
Super easy set up, effortless onboarding, and great pricing plan for small groups. It has strong search functionality and intuitive threading.
You can have fun and customize. For example: We have a 'Jokes' channel that the slack bot will tell you jokes if you ask 'bot tell me a dad joke'- It's amazing.

Pros

The planner is principally great because it's native to Microsoft. Especially in MS Teams, it's super to manage single tasks.
I like that the system is accessible on any device. The design is straightforward to use and is moderately feature rich.
A good tool with a friendly and intuitive interface.

Cons

I disliked the inability to make a public group "private" after it's creation. Would occasionally lag and my.
While they are only visible to me, I am always worried that I accidentally posted something wrong.
They found it awkward that everything was a chat in Slack and uncomfortable with sending out a message that may "bother" others for small issues, and reverted to email, even with consistent reminders.

Cons

It does have limits in the enterprise tier we have. The most annoying is that we can't tag team members in the comments of tasks and we can't create sub-tasks within it.
I have many small business clients, ran by over-stressed small business owners who only use their phones, and only have time to take in limited amounts of information. This app is useless on mobile.
Regarding this app, there are few things I dislike.
