  3. Things used before Slack • Facebook Messenger ◦ Too many

    threads • HipChat ◦ (At that time) There was no setting of permission, it was difficult to control outsourcer

    little expensive, but it was not enough to care • History runs out ◦ We used both for a while, but gave up
  6. Merit • Notification settings can be made finer • We

    could re-start that we want to communicate more openly
  7. Culture • Use Slack even if you are next to

    the conversation target ◦ After finishing with verbal conversations, write a summary in Slack later • Open information ◦ Only the conversation that is troublesome if all members can be seen is made with a private channel
