A more deliberate work environment

Slack messages are rarely urgent, but when you're getting pinged all day, it's hard to get work done. Discourse for Teams helps your company be more deliberate by limiting unnecessary distractions.

Your team's long-term memory

Meeting notes disappear, emails end up forgotten, and Slack logs get erased. Your team needs a place to store and find relevant information for the long-term. Whether it's a how-to guide, onboarding checklist, or project discussion, Discourse for Teams keeps this information handy — for now and for the future.

Made by a remote team, for remote teams

The folks making Discourse are part of a fully remote, asynchronous team, and they've used Discourse to coordinate those efforts since 2013. Discourse for Teams takes all the lessons the company learned about working remotely and gives you a communication platform to take your team to the next level.

Discourse for Teams vs. Slack:
What's right for my team?

Choosing the best software for your team might seem like a difficult choice, but it doesn't have to be.

The main factor in your decision is your company culture. Do you thrive working at a breakneck pace, jumping in and out of meetings and chats all day long? Then Slack might be for you.

Or does your team benefit from deeper focus, fewer interruptions, and flexible work hours? This is where Discourse for Teams shines.

If your company is already using Slack, you can use both! Discourse for Teams and Slack pair well together if you view chats and discussion topics as your company's short- and long-term memory, respectively. Slack works well for quick, in the moment exchanges (i.e. handling urgent issues), where Teams excels at slower-paced, more thoughtful discussions (i.e. handling follow-up discussion and todos after an event). When the important, relevant discussion moves from Slack to Discourse for Teams, the entire company benefits for the long-term.
