Simple Decisions helps you make, record, broadcast, and contextualise decisions in Slack. Conversations and discussions thrive in Slack, but sometimes it’s hard to know when a conclusion was reached or a decision was made. Simple Decisions helps keep all team members on the same page.
To capture a decision, use the /decision command in Slack, write your decision, press publish and your decision will be shared within that Slack channel. If there are any recent polls shared within the channel, you’ll be given the option to add the poll as decision context.
Any decision you’d like to capture and share with colleagues! Whether it’s a decision to move forward with a candidate, a new supplier for your product, the date for your upcoming meetup, the color of your new logo, or the next feature you’ve prioritised. You can use Simple Decisions to capture any outcome you wish, and decisions do not need to have happened as a result of a poll.
The decision record is the home of all decisions that have been recorded within each channel in Slack. Go here to review recently made decisions or check back to recall what was decided.
No, a decision does not need to be linked to a poll. In fact, we believe that many of the decisions Simple Decisions can help with won’t involve any polls! However, if you do find yourself making a decision as a result of a poll, you can add it as decision context.
To help you keep track of important decisions made within a specific channel, you can follow them, which will send you a notification in Slack when a new decision is published.
To unfollow a decision made in a channel click the three-dot menu to the right of the decision and click on ‘Follow channel decisions’. You’ll be notified you already follow this channel, and can then click the button to unfollow the decisions made within that channel.
