I know you worked on Slack for a while -- not looking for you to bash them. :)
But, do you think there's anything that they should be focused on that hasn't been prioritized yet?
A big part of the early culture at Slack was being critical about the state of the product, so I'm happy to share. I don't know what their current priorities are and would be guessing from external signals like anyone else.
My favorite unpopular product idea while I worked at Slack (that I still believe in) would be a "deskless workers" account that would be much cheaper and integrate with tools like Toast to help food service/logistics/manufacturing companies go all-in on Slack.
I actually disagreed with the design of our mobile apps entirely, which I still think should be designed around the "drop in for 5 minutes to check messages or find something" use case rather than be smaller versions of the desktop tool.

The market is bursting with new software, a lot of new products are launching every day. A few months ago I posted on Capiche about my SaaS idea. Your feedback is priceless and helped us to change...
Particularly for comm tools like slack and zoom, and you are purchasing for a team, what admin features are most valuable to you beyond ‘standard’ user features?
