Automation

All your tools for project tracking under one roof

  • Discuss and manage tasks

  • Easily share and collaborate on project files

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 starters 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.
