Disorganised chat hurts team productivity and alignment.

Smithy app for Slack Smithy is an app for Slack that helps conversations stay on topic by making sure that messages are always in threads only and decisions are easier to track.

How Smithy Works

It's simple.
We wanted Smithy to be as invisible as possible, with your Slack experience still feeling natural. This means that threads are still authored by people, not a bot. You choose which channels Smithy should be active in. And the threads look (almost) like regular Slack threads.
Activate Smithy in a channel after adding the app to Slack.
Start a new thread with a subject and message.
Only threads are allowed in activated channels. Messages outside threads get cleaned up automatically.
After the discussion ends, close the thread with a decision or conclusion visible to everyone.

Bad communication is expensive.
Smithy isn't.
Based on data from the fine folks at RescueTime, companies may be spending as much as 10%-30% of an employee's salary just on their time spent on communication software. Ineffective, unproductive internal communication can be really expensive for an organisation.
You have 30 days to try Smithy on your Slack workspace completely for free, no credit card required. After that, you will need need to switch to a paid plan, depending on the size of your Slack workspace.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a free trial period?
Yes. You can use all of Smithy's features with no restriction for 30 days.

If you are serious about improving your team's communication processes, Smithy's price is minor compared to the problems that you face.
Is annual pricing available?
Yes. You'll get 17% off (2 months free).
Are educational discounts available?
Absolutely, and for any education-related workspace, not just schools and universities. Send us an email.
I can't afford Smithy. Can I get a discount?
We've tried to price Smithy fairly, additionally localising based on regional cost of living factors. If Smithy's pricing is not a good fit for your circumstances, tell us more and we'll work something us.
Is enforcing threads really worth paying for?
You're paying for automatically keeping conversations on topic, knowing when discussions are closed, and making decisions clear to your team. Better team alignment and less overhead in general.
Will I get an invoice?
Does everyone in my Slack workspace need to authenticate with Smithy?
No, only those team members that create threads through Smithy.
What Slack permissions does Smithy require?
When you click on the Add to Slack button, we will first walk you through all of the permissions that Smithy requires and why.
Is Smithy a good fit for large teams?
Communication and alignment issues grow non-linearly with team size. Larger teams benefit even more from Smithy.
Why doesn't Smithy charge per user?
We believe Smithy provides value for the entire team, not just for individual team members using it.

Common Problems. Different context.
We built Smithy based on our own experiences working at a fully distributed company, communicating mostly on Slack. The problems we faced are not unique.
You're not alone.
Organising communication and knowledge sharing is an issue shared with other teams across various industries, and the mind-blowing variety of verticals that have joined Smithy confirms this.
Your specific processes, motivations, and requirements are likely different compared with ours.
That is why we want to hear from you. Let us know if Smithy can be improved to serve your needs better. Some things we may not be able to do at all, technically. Others may be completely out of scope. But we will listen and do our best.
We'd also be happy to give you a quick walkthrough live over a video call. Schedule a demo
