Internal Communication Without Email: Slack for Newsrooms
- Hours of Effort
About This Course
Have you ever lost a great idea because you didn't see the email? Left a time-sensitive email to languish in your Drafts folder? Wasted precious time searching for a message or an attachment?
Instead of bemoaning how much time you spend checking your email, maybe it's time to think about using a tool that will make your organization's communication more effective.
Newsrooms are made up of moving parts that work together to produce complex, compelling stories. Slack can be the hub of your internal communications that connects the moving parts to ensure that information is getting to the right people at the right time.
