Host a brainstorm

Getting folks together to brainstorm new ideas is a great reason for a meeting. But sometimes, people aren’t in the same room. Or they’re afraid to speak up and share their ideas. Plus, when you’re done with any in-Slack virtual meeting, you’ll have a transcript of the meeting already in your channel.


How to host a brainstorm in Slack

  1. Decide on a specific channel and time to conduct your brainstorming meeting
  2. At the agreed upon time, write a message that kicks off the meeting and gives everyone a prompt to get started
  3. Everyone can post their ideas as new messages, others can join in and riff on the best ideas while others can help refine and focus ideas
  4. Have team members upvote the best ideas using emoji reactions, like this one ➕
  5. At the specified meeting’s end, post another message to let people know their time is up
