"When I moved the team to Slack, I was pretty excited about it. We were communicating more. We felt like things were getting done faster. We spent less time in email, and that’s a huge win.
But then I quickly realized, it all came at a cost.
Our project teams were getting more questions answered, but our engineers and designers were getting less and less work done.
The distractions were a huge issue.
I decided to create some “Slack and productivity rules” for our teams to follow.
Since Slack is so widely used (and abused), I thought I would share the rules publicly."
