Transfer Slack to Google Chat While Retaining Message Threads

It goes without saying that continuity in message-based communication is the essence of collaboration between individual users and within their teams. And when it comes to transferring messages from chat apps like Slack to Google Chat, retaining the message threads shouldn’t be an oversight. It must be a part of your organization’s overall efforts to replicate Slack’s structure in Google Chat.

The High-Level Importance of Retaining Threads and Replies

Be it any form of communication, such as emails, phone calls, and in our context, messages, sequence is what creates the communication flow. Any changes/swaps between the sequence and the flow gets lost. Similarly, when transferring group and direct messages from Slack to G Chat, changes in the sequences, threads, after the migration is something that your IT team wouldn’t definitely want.

With this issue, you risk derailing the collaboration and workflow, causing a significant disruption in everyday operations. This, in turn, can have ripple effects and impact the clients dependent on your company’s products and/or services.
