Slack Integration: Why Droplr’s is the Best

Aside from providing seamless communication among team members, Slack integrations are one of the tool’s top selling points for many organizations. Droplr’s customers say our integration is the best Slack integration: it streamlines your workflow by making your and conversations stand out visually. 

Why Slack? Why Droplr?

slack and droplr

Both Slack and Droplr are excellent work productivity tools that can be used to help your team work more quickly and efficiently. Slack is the #1 work collaboration app and includes text, voice, and video chat, file sharing, and integrations with over 2,000 other apps. Chats are divided into channels on Slack so that each team has their own space to communicate on problems and collaborate on solutions.

Droplr is a highly-rated screenshot and screen recording app that stores all of your screen captures on the cloud. Droplr makes it easy to share your screen with your co-workers–simply take a screen capture, annotate it, and then send it to anyone with a short link or via one of Droplr’s 15+ integrations. Droplr’s Slack integration is truly one of the best Slack apps available as it combines two excellent work productivity tools to bring your team’s communciation to the next level.

Pros of Droplr’s Slack integration: 

  1. Get inline preview of all your screenshots and annotations in Slack shared among team members. 
  2. Get feedback instantly through annotations directly in the browser for much quicker back and forth collaboration..  
  3. Save and organize screenshots and screen recordings  to your Droplr boards – no need to search Slack for them (even though we know Slack makes searching easy!)

Cons of Droplr’s Slack integration 

  1. Inline previews take up space visually so if you share several at the same time, you’ll need to scroll down more–and this may be totally user preference! 
  2. As with any new tool or Slack add on, team adaptation can lag, causing some users to share files via Slack while others may share in a different format. 

Let’s discuss the pros and cons of the Droplr Slack integration more in depth. 

Pros

An example of how Droplr screenshots appear on Slack

Speak clearly with screenshots and screen recordings. 

Sometimes it’s easier to show rather than tell. Use Droplr to take screenshots and screen recordings and share them with your colleagues in an instant via Slack. The visual element will help others understand what you’re communicating better than trying to type out several lines of text. 

Get feedback instantly. 

The Droplr Slack plugin allows users to annotate screenshots in the browser, directly from Slack. Mark up your screenshots and share them with your teammates for clear, seamless communication. Anyone who sees your Droplr screenshot will be able to leave visual feedback and post a response right back into the conversation. 

Save screenshots and screen recordings to Droplr  

While Slack’s search feature makes it easy to find files and conversations, Droplr’s Slack integration allows you to save files directly to your personal Droplr dashboard or share it on a team board. Everything will be in one place for quick access when needed – no need to scroll or bounce from search result to search result. 

Cons

A few more lines to sort through. 

The Droplr Slack add on previews all shared content. To the vast majority of users, this isn’t a big deal, but there may be a few users out there that don’t want to skim past image previews.

Slow adaptation 

As with any new tool or integration, team adaptation could lag, meaning some members may quickly become a pro at using Droplr with Slack while others may stick to previously used methods. This can be frustrating for team members who have to click, download, and then view shared content in other programs like Photoshop (which Droplr also integrates with!)

How to integrate Droplr with Slack

Integrating Droplr with Slack is easy! Start by turning on the Droplr integration in your workspace. (If you haven’t already registered for Droplr, you can use your Slack account to create your team in Droplr.) From there? Simply start using Droplr! 

If your team uses Slack, we highly recommend introducing the Droplr integration to your workflow as well. It will streamline your workflow, help you communicate more clearly, and allow you to keep all of your screenshots and screen recordings in one place.
