Slack is a platform created by Slack Technpogies, Inc. which allows users to communicate with each other in real time through instant messaging and also to make calls using a VoIP application. It works in the cloud, hence allowing users to access it from any device they want. Slack was launched on August 2013 and since then it has become the most popular communication top used by different businesses and individuals all over the world. It can be accessed from many different devices such as desktop computers, laptops, mobile phones, tablets, and even through the web.
PDF4me is an application created by a team of programmers that allows users to create PDF files from various sources such as documents or images. The idea behind its creation was to allow people to have a simple way of converting their documents into PDF format.
The integration of Slack and PDF4me allows for the users to be able to create PDF files from within Slack. This would allow them to easily create PDF files from any file that they already have in their accounts. This would not only save them a lot of time but also reduce any expenses that might occur due to the purchase of third party software. PDF4me is currently only available for users of the Mac operating systems; however it is expected that it will be available to Windows users soon.
Since Slack is a cloud based platform, it has been integrated with PDF4me so that users may easily convert documents into PDF files without having to download additional software. Since PDF4me is not available for Windows users yet, only Mac users are able to use this feature. However, it is expected that PDF4me will be available for Windows users soon as well. According to their website, there are two ways in which a user can integrate the two applications:
Slack App. Users can install the ‘Slack app’ and then connect it with their account. According to the website, “Once you activate the Slack App, you’ll see options to create a document or an image from your favorite application directly in your Slack workspace:” (pdf4meapp.com. Clicking on the “Create Document” option will take the user to a new window where they are able to choose up to ten different formats in which they would like their document to be converted into. If a user chooses a certain format and then clicks on “Save”, they will be taken to another window where they are prompted to chose a name for the newly created file. Once they do so, the file will become saved in the fpder of their choice on their hard drive.

Once they do so, the file will become saved in the fpder of their choice on their hard drive. Applet. Another way in which users can integrate these two applications is through the use of an applet. “An applet is an Applets are small bits of code that run in your web browser or native iOS app on your phone or tablet” (pdf4meapp.com. In order for you to use an applet, you must first have a developer account which allows you to create your own applets for platforms such as Google Chrome or even for mobile apps such as Android devices or iPhones. The advantages of using an applet are that it requires less effort than installing a full fledged application and also that users would not have to rely on a web browser extension if they want to access it from within Chrome. It should be noted that once an applet is installed, it immediately starts working without requiring any additional process by the user. One of the major disadvantages of using an applet is that it may not always work as quickly as other methods such as using an extension or even using a plugin. Users must also remember that using an applet requires that they must always have an internet connection available if they want it to work properly.
The main benefit of this integration is that it saves users time and money because instead of having to purchase third party software or even access programs from the cloud, they can simply use this new feature from within their own Slack accounts – all they need is a computer or mobile device with internet access and a free account at both PDF4me and Slack. Another major benefit is that due to its integration with Chrome, users can now access the new feature from within Chrome itself rather than having to open up separate windows for both Slack and PDF4me – this saves them time as well as prevents them from having to switch between windows constantly whenever they need to convert their documents into PDF files.
In conclusion, we can say that integrating Slack and PDF4me is definitely going to save users both time and money when compared with other methods such as using third party software applications or even accessing programs via the cloud. There are two ways in which users can integrate these two applications – using an applet or using an extension; however some users may find that using an applet may not always work as fast as using an extension or using a plugin would. It should also be noted that while some users may view this as beneficial because they do not require any additional hardware or software on top of their existing Slack accounts, others may view this as being inconvenient due to the fact that it requires an internet connection in order for them to access this feature from within Slack.
