Conversations and discussions thrive in Slack, but sometimes it’s hard to know when a conclusion was reached or a decision was made. Especially as workspaces grow in size, things can get messy:

  • It's very easy to have lengthy discussions without ever coming to a conclusion
  • Important decisions often don't reach all those who would benefit from knowing
  • Decisions that do get made are quickly lost in message history

We're excited to share Simple Decisions, which we've built to address these problems. Simple Decisions helps you make, record, broadcast, and contextualise decisions in Slack.

Product overview

Capture any decision by using the /decision command. The decision that is then posted in the channel is designed to stand out form other less-important Slack messages.

Decision Record

All captured decisions are kept in the Decision Record. Go there to review recently made decisions or check back to recall what was decided. The Decision Record is available within Slack and also via the web dashboard.

Following channels

With Simple Decisions, you can "follow channels" to be notified of decisions that get made there. One of the benefits of this is that even when you're not an active member of a Slack channel, you can stay on top of their most important decisions.
