Flow vs Slack: What are the differences?
Developers describe Flow as "Simple project and task management for busy teams". Flow is an online collaboration platform that makes it easy for people to create, organize, discuss, and accomplish tasks with anyone, anytime, anywhere. By merging a sleek, intuitive interface with powerful functionality, we're out to revolutionize the way the world's productive teams get things done. On the other hand, Slack is detailed as "Bring all your communication together in one place". Imagine all your team communication in one place, instantly searchable, available wherever you go. That’s Slack. All your messages. All your files. And everything from Twitter, Dropbox, Google Docs, Asana, Trello, GitHub and dozens of other services. All together.
Flow belongs to "Project Management" category of the tech stack, while Slack can be primarily classified under "Group Chat & Notifications".
Some of the features offered by Flow are:
- Simple Project Management- Visually plan and organize all of your projects as lists or cards on kanban boards
- Team Collaboration- Invite anyone to collaborate on a task whether they have an account or not.
- Live Updates- With Flow, updates happen in real-time so everyone’s always up-to-speed.
On the other hand, Slack provides the following key features:
- Create open channels for the projects, groups and topics that the whole team shares.
- Search with context
- Autocomplete makes mentioning your teammates quick and painless.
"Easy to use" is the primary reason why developers consider Flow over the competitors, whereas "Easy to integrate with" was stated as the key factor in picking Slack.
Airbnb, Dropbox, and Medium are some of the popular companies that use Slack, whereas Flow is used by Grooveshark, WILD, and Startae. Slack has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4744 company stacks & 3361 developers stacks; compared to Flow, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.
