Everyone agrees Slack has great onboarding, and here's how you can replicate it for your own product!

What makes Slack's onboarding so great?

There's been a lot written about Slack's great user onboarding - it is credited as one of the key components to Slack becoming a billion-dollar business. They did a few really smart things:

  • Focused on a few key concepts
  • Made it interactive
  • Used bright and bold colors to embrace the teaching

User onboarding became "fun", possibly for the first time ever! This is in stark contrast to many users being annoyed by product tours or terrible tooltips.

So check out our short video below on what makes Slack's user onboarding great, but also how to re-create it for your own product.
