Manage your way to perfect project management

Learn how PM teams use Slack for:

Automation

All your tools for project tracking under one roof

Slack shouldn’t replace the tools you already use for project management — but it does make them better. Powerful integrations with other services bring tasks, notifications and more into and out of Slack.

A project manager gets Asana updates right in Slack channels. With a click, she can get more detail or mark as complete.

  • Discuss and manage tasks

    Centralize tasks from different software, discuss resolutions, and create new tasks all from within Slack.

  • Keep projects on track

    Send task updates and deadline reminders into Slack, keeping everyone on top of project progress.

  • Easily share and collaborate on project files

    Find and share files from file management services like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive, without leaving Slack.

PLANNING

Collaborate your way to a successful project planning process

Slack helps keep information clear and visible, so even the tiniest deliverables aren’t missed. Share documents or files in project channels so even new hires have the info they need to move work forward.

In a simulated Slack channel, a project manager assigns tasks and shares a Google spreadsheet with team members.

COLLABORATION

Easily find coworkers in Slack to assign deliverables, check in on progress, or celebrate successes. Channels for projects, teams, or roles keep everyone on the same page, wherever they are.

A busy project manager delegates resources in a Slack channel created just for that very purpose.
