We used Slack, and then Flock, and now we’re on Teams.

Which one did you prefer out of the three?

Many of our developers started using Slack back before Teams existed as S4B was junk, but we’ve seen a huge increase in usage of Teams since we started working from home. Not sure if any of those devs have moved over; we’re hoping they will as they are using the free (read unencrypted) version of Slack.

Slack and Flock were pretty similar. I think we spent more time with Flock but it could just be because we used that one second.

Teams is a whole different beast, and while it doesn’t have the same kind of “channels” that the former have, I think I might prefer it overall just for the hub it’s become.

ZOOM Chat since we have ZOOM Conferencing. Before that we had Jabber.

Teams. Very happy with it!

Webex Teams but that is not on the list! Started with Slack then to Webex Teams 3 years ago, combined Slack/WhatsApp & Video Conferencing into an Enterprise app.

I didn’t realize Webex had launched a chat platform as well - good to know!
