Slack is a popular communication and collaboration tool which has been adopted by many organizations including the one I work for. I am a fan of Slack and use it on a regular basis. Like most users, I am a member of several different workspaces and a ton of different channels.
I think most Slack users would agree that one of the most commonly miss-used feature of Slack is the @channel and @here notifications which allows a user to broadcast a message that notifies everyone within a specific channel. I most often see this when a user is looking for immediate assistance and think that this is the best way to get help, it is not. In some cases, inpatient uses end up spamming multiple channels which can have up to 1K+ members! As you can imagine, this type of behavior is usually not well received.
This is the modern day "reply-all" email storms that I am sure many of you have at experienced at least once if not many more times within your organization 🙂 Slack does provide a few ways of disabling notification, either within the workspace but this would disable the feature completely and I do see value in this feature when used correctly or disabling notifications on a per-channel basis as shown in the screenshot below.
