Slack is our super-focused communication platform (for getting shit done!). It’s a and mobile app, but it can also be used just in a browser but we highly recommend the desktop app.

If you’re a really busy person who can’t keep up with all the messages, you can just use the “Mentions & reactions ” and “All DMs” in the left sidebar which makes it much easier to filter down to just what’s for you.


Threading on Slack is one of those habits that can make a huge difference for organization so I just wanted to give a quick tip that you can just press "T" to reply in a thread to a message.

“Saved Items” for Quick Tasks / Follow-ups

Use the ‘Saved Items” feature (”A” hotkey) to easily track the status of quick asks/tasks (5 min or less) in Slack that we don’t want to enter into clickup but ensure that they got done.
