If you communicate with your team on Slack, you can streamline the process of adding new tasks to your to-do list. Once a message appears in Slack, a new task will be added to OmniFocus. Your personal to-do list is up to date with information shared through Slack messages, allowing you to spend time prioritizing your tasks.
