Keep everyone informed

Increase transparency and decrease “what’s going on?” emails by announcing updates and outages through Slack. Create a central location for IT resources and help users solve minor but disruptive issues on their own.

Monitor and react with app integrations

App integrations turn Slack into your central command, giving you visibility into technical problems and helping your team work towards resolutions.

Better service through structured channels

Organized and well-named channels make it easier for your users and team to request and provide support. Here are some examples of the channel naming conventions useful for IT teams:

#help-it, #ask-it —
an open channel for requesting help from IT (and seeing if a question has been answered before)

#nyc-help-it, #kcmo-announce-it —
location-specific channels for fielding support or broadcasting announcements about updates or outages

#it-infrastructure, #it-desk —
operations-related discussions for specific functions within your IT team

#it-team —
general discussion between IT team members
