A Survival Guide for Slack Users

  1. Favorite just a handful of channels in Slack. These are the most important ones for you. If a favorited channel sees frequent new messages, mute it.
  2. Mute all of the other channels.
  3. Postpone all of the requests from other people by clicking “Remind me” next to a message. I usually postpone requests for an hour.
  4. Turn off push notifications when you’re working.

Remember that the very first slogan on Slack’s website was “Be less busy”.
