May Poll Question: What Channel-Based Messaging Platform(s) Do You Use + What Are Your Best Communication Tips?

May-2021-Poll-Question

Discord. Slack. Flock. Ryver. Teams. Mattermost. Chanty. No, these are not the names of rock bands, racehorses, or breakfast cereals. They’re popular channel-based messaging platforms that allow teams to solve problems, share updates, organize work — and yes, tell jokes every now and then, such as: “How many programmers does it take to change a lightbulb? None — that’s a hardware problem.”

And that brings us to May’s poll question (the platforms — not the jokes). As we did last month, this is going to be a two-parter.

The first part of the poll question is: What channel-based messaging platform(s) do you use to stay in touch with your team?

The second part of the poll question is: What are your best communication tips when using these platform(s)? Tell us what works for you, and tell us what doesn’t — so that we can benefit from your experience and insight.

You Could Win

Just by participating in the Mall poll, you’ll be automatically entered to win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards. That’s more than enough to buy some new joke books to keep your team laughing. Want another one? OK, here you go: “There are 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand binary…and those that don’t.”

Laurence Cadieux

Hello! My name is Laurence Cadieux, and I’m a Communication Specialist here at Devolutions. My role includes overseeing the content strategy and development of our blog, managing the content and communication for our VIP advocate platform “Devolutions Force,” and working closely with our PR partners around the world. I also handle our off-site content opportunities (magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.). Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I sing in a band, and I enjoy watching my favorite movies again and again. I also love cooking, and during the pandemic, I became a bread expert — I can now bake the most amazing key lime pie on earth (if I do say so myself!). Plus, I recently discovered LEGO and there is no turning back — I’m hooked! I’m always happy to help, and you can reach me directly at lcadieux@devolutions.net.
