Re: Better for work Slack does have advantages over email for organizing documents and messages -- and Slack has integrations that allow apps to connect to it so that some things can be done nearly automatically. Sure, I suppose you could build a way to trigger apps with emails, but it wouldn't have the friendly interface that slack (sorta) has. 

Slack started out, though, as a kind of informal way to message with collaborators.. but now that it's added corporate oversight tools, that informal nature of Slack seems to be long gone. But it's somewhat dangerous in this way because some people might still use Slack with a certain amount of informality -- and not realize that all their work messages are being recorded and owned by their employer and subject to all the same rules as "work email" is (but with out the required footer about unintended recipients of Slack messages)....

Re: Better for work If I didn't think it were silly, I'd say you just dropped the mic on that one.

So yes, you're right exactly. Typing is super easy so message volume is the real issue -- maybe not so much the platform.

Re: Better for work Folks view Slack as a cure for email overload. But email overload is a function of volume of messages, rather than the user interface. 

When Slack gets as busy as email, it's just as hard to keep up with.

Better for work Slack is all grown up now that it's introducing enterprise features. I have read a lot about Slack fatigue. It's great when it's great, but people get tired of interacting on Slack. They're probably just a small number of users so maybe regular folks will join in.
