I get it. I do. It's completely natural and efficient to bring the Trello discussion group from Slack to a new home in the Atlassian community. And I'll get used to it. But here's what I'll miss for now:
If I've got a big project going, I'll do that first. But if not, I'll open my Slack desktop app to see if anything's happening I need to know about, or I'll open it because I need to write something in one of my workspaces. The Trello community workspace on Slack is one of 10 workspaces that open when I run the app. I'll see there's unread messages and this makes it easy for me to dip in and see what's new, and it feels like a discussion, it feels casual. There's a passive aspect to it, where I can see which channels have new messages, and then choose to read them now, or later.
I've only been here for a few minutes and it feels more like a help desk. Instead of channels, we have tags, instead of browsing we have search. It's a much more active experience-- which is great when you've got a problem to solve, or need ideas from the crowd. But now it's harder when I just want to keep in touch, see whatever comes to light, learn new things that I didn't know I wanted to learn about. It loses the hallway/water cooler experience that Slack provided.
Yes, I can bookmark the Trello page, and set up alerts for specific tags. I have to decide to go look at them rather than have them come to me, and no I don't want them coming to me in the form of emails. Does anyone have any ideas of how to set up the new format so there's an easy browsing experience similar to the feel of Slack?
