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 among the best Slack integrations; it streamlines your workflow by making your and conversations stand out visually.
Why Slack? Why 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 and screen sharing, and integrations with over 2,000 other apps. Chats are divided into channels on Slack so that each team has its 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
- Droplr provides another way to share your screen on Slack. You can share screen recordings and screenshots. Get inline previews of all your screenshots and annotations in Slack shared among team members.
- Get feedback instantly through annotations directly in the browser for much quicker back and forth collaboration. Draw on your screen and send it back to your teammates!
- 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
- 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!
- 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.
Speak clearly with screenshots and screen recordings.
Sometimes it’s easier to show rather than tell. Use Droplr to take and share Slack screenshots and screen recordings with your colleagues. You can even save Photoshop images directly to Droplr, then share them in 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.
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.
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.
