How to be more productive with Slack

Slack became a standard de-facto to communicate teams in IT area for sure. It has a lot of useful features as well as smart business decisions such HipHat acquisition.

Here is a nice article with seven points which help you to be more productive using Slack. My favorite tips are reminders and giphy. Plus ability to keep track of important messages.

Reminders are really excite. For example, to set reminder to notify you today at 12pm to come to the office just send this command to the slack bot:

/remind me to come to office today at 12pm

And Slack bot will send you notification today at 12pm. It’s also possible to set reminder for your colleague or channel as well as one time reminders or recurring ones.

Hide up/down arrows on inputs with type=”number”

HTML5 brought many cool things and input type number is one of them. It allows to input only numbers from the box and there is a way to specify limits for input values. However together with those useful features it has one annoying thing – up/down arrows on the right side, embedded into field. If you don’t like them just change field type to textinput and they disappear. But there is a more elegant way to hide them and the same time use all advantages of HTML5 number form input. Just add to your CSS file following code:
[code lang=”CSS”]
.no-spinners {
-moz-appearance:textfield;
}
.no-spinners::-webkit-outer-spin-button,
.no-spinners::-webkit-inner-spin-button {
-webkit-appearance: none;
margin: 0;
}
[/code]
After that add class no-spinners to any number input you would like to see without up/down arrows.
