Slack’s interface is great for minimalists or people who have 3 channels to keep track of. When you have 200+ channels and dozens of DM’s to keep track of, it’s horrendous! You can get Slack open in a browser, but multiple tabs tend to collapse back into whatever you touched last. You can start opening in-cognito windows but that’s a hassle and doesn’t work beyond 2 anyway. Why don’t they just allow tabs or multiple windows at once? Outlook hasn’t gotten it right yet, so why should Slack.
In the meantime, here’s how:
Right click, Copy
Right click in a blank spot, Paste
Rename it to “Slack 2” or whatever
Lather rinse repeat, I have 4 available
Run that app, the Mac has to treat it as a separate app, but it knows how to get connected so you can have multiples open at once!
Notifications will drive you nuts! Be warned. Other than that, it’s a memory hog, but what else is new.
