Everyday we do things that eat away at our time, but fear not as we have a few tips that we've collected and found to be the most useful for making the most of our day.

1 - Slack

There’s a good chance that your business already uses Slack, but if not
 you’re really missing out on an extremely useful tool. Slack is a slick messaging app that helps organise communication between clients, send files, and talk internally in one single place. Slack allows you to create channels for each of your clients or projects, where you can quickly message people by tagging them or alerting the entire channel. This app, if utilised correctly can help save time requesting files, getting in touch with people, and communicating internally. Slack is available on web, desktop, and mobile,so you can have it anywhere you go. For more info on the benefits of Slack, check out our full post on improving team and client communication.

BONUS: Slack also has a lot of compatibility with plugins, one of our favourites is Send to Slack for Sketch, it allows you to export artboards directly from Sketch to a Slack channel, user, or group.
