Discussion on: [Ask Dev] Is Slack disruptive at work?

I like using Slack, but in every job I've worked in (as a developer and outside of development) I've put it on mute. I try to make it clear to my colleagues that I won't always have an instant answer for them and it's never been an issue in any team I've worked in.

All I find myself really missing out on is the general group chat and while all the cat gifs are nice, I'd rather spend my days more productively.
