Slack not Mail - How I saved 1hr/per day with Slack


Do you know this?

You spend a lot of time forwarding emails? You regularly have to explain things 2, 3, or 4 times? You can’t find emails again because they were archived or deleted?


Then Slack is the right thing for you!


What is Slack?

Slack is a platform for communication. Imagine an online forum where content is discussed by authorized members and can be viewed by them permanently. This means that all information is stored centrally and anyone who needs information can simply search for it. No forwarding, no searching for old emails. This is Slack – for me the perfect alternative to MS Outlook.


Save 1h per day? What makes Slack the right Microsoft Outlook alternative for me?

I’ve been using Slack intensively for 2 years now, and I’ve hardly been able to achieve such an efficiency gain through any other tool on the market as I have through Slack. I was able to save about 1h per day by using Slack due to the following funtkions/features:

  • Centralized communication that does not take place in emails
  • Easy retrieval of content
  • Easy sharing of content
  • Editing of created content
  • Perfect access management
  • Reminder functions
  • App connectivity to Outlook, Miro, Asana, Monday com, cloud storage and all apps you need
  • Build simple process automations through chat bots and workflows
  • Simple user management

My time savings per day (estimated sometimes more, sometimes less):

  • Forwarding emails: 10 minutes,
  • Search emails: 10 minutes,
  • Manage distribution lists: 5 minutes,
  • Posting information from emails to the intranet: 15 minutes,
  • Writing reminders to the team: 10 minutes,
  • Link to documents, share resources: 10 minutes

~ 60 minutes per day -> At 8h working day this is 12,5% more productivity!!!


What will you learn?

In the following 90 minutes, you will learn about Slack as an application in a simple and practical way. In this course I want to help you to use Slack as a real time gain! For that, I’ll show you everything you need to know about Slack, step by step:
