Flowdock vs Slack
Last updated: September 25, 2018
Flowdock is a team collaboration app for desktop, mobile & web. Work on things that matter, be transparent and solve problems across tools, teams & time zones. One place to talk and stay up-to-date.
Slack brings all your communication together in one place. It's real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams. Create open channels for the projects, groups and topics that the whole team shares. Slack searches whole conversations, not just individual messages, so you can find what you’re looking for no matter who said what or when they said it. Slack free open-source (self-hosted) alternatives are: Mattermost, Rocket.Chat, Zulip

2015 - Slack integrated with Google Calendar to keep up with Flowdock
Slack, the popular office communication tool, will now integrate with Google Calendar, letting events automatically post reminders inside slack channels. After linking a Google account to Slack, you can choose any calendar and instruct it to post to certain Slack channels. For example, you could have events from your company’s development deadline calendar post reminders to the #dev channel two days before a product deadline. Or, on a more lighthearted note, you could have your company’s birthday or holiday calendar automatically post to #general so your whole team can celebrate together. The integration will also allow daily or weekly calendar summaries to be sent out to everyone subscribed to a certain Slack channel.
