Essential Tool for our Resourcing

2019-01-17

Pros

It is easy to add projects and assign them to different employees. The reporting tools are very helpful as well. The overview of what everyone is working on is very helpful. Searching within the program is perfect.

Cons

Slack or Jira integration would be helpful.

Great resource allocation tool!

2019-01-17

I'm handling a very dynamic group of people and this is key to get the overall big picture.

Pros

Easy to use. The drag and drop functionality keeps it very simple.

Cons

I would also like to control the type of triggers for the slack notifications.

Perhaps a Slack integration would be cool?

Great product to keep tracking of your team's taks

2019-01-17

The whole team knows what other team members are all the time

Pros

What I like the most is the easy navigation and display of the information. The whole team knows at a glance what other team members are all the time and that's really useful when you have to collaborate.

Cons

Also, it would be cool to have integration with other apps like Slack or Google Docks in order to share some notes.

Easy team planning

2019-02-06

We needed to stay on top of the schedule for the engineering team and Float helps in that.

Pros

I really like the simplicity of Float, as you get everything done with drag and drop. Filling a week of our 15+ people is a breeze.

Cons

Another glitch is that sometimes the sync breaks on other clients and they have to refresh to pull-in changes. Their Slack integration is really basic at the moment, as it streams notifications over Slack.

Class above the rest in the demanding world of business communication

2018-10-21

Having instant and organized communication within our organization is amazing. Certain employees even join clients' workspaces to be a part of their channels, all in the same app. Super easy.

Pros

Slack is constantly being updated with little tweaks that make the software more intuitive and introduce deeper integrations and more features. The public channels and direct messages are intuitive and powerful. Search is fast and flexible, and attachments are a breeze. Love their new Google suite integrations - Slack automatically notifies you if someone in the channel doesn't have access to view the document you just shared!

Cons

It automatically sorts alphabetically with muted channels at the bottom and direct messages below that, but I end up starring direct messages so they float to the top.

2017-07-14

Nothing, I really like it!

Pros

Fun and effective way to share information, create discussions, and engage employees about topics related and unrelated to work.

Pinned posts should float to the top of a channel.

Nothing beats Slack for Chat

2018-07-24

Pros

Fun to use due to custom emoji, in-line gifs, and pleasant design. Easy to search. Easy to make a bot, especially with the help of Zapier. Second nature to younger generations. Great to be able to snooze notifications during certain hours unless the sender decides it is extra-urgent.

Cons

Channels can proliferate - as a company with less than 20 employees, we quickly found ourselves with more channels than employees, and single conversations would sometimes float between them.
