Our team has extensively used Slack for the past several years. We’ve loved it. However, our school’s admin has requested us to stop using it because the direct messages cannot be monitored, as there are many minors in the program including adults. I totally understand the liability part of it, but I haven’t found a good alternative yet. Obviously, Slack and Discord can’t be our “official” chatting platforms. Their recommendation was e-mail or making a google forum, but those really aren’t ideal, as we send ~1000 messages a week during build season.
Any recommendations for a chatting app that either lets coaches / admin monitor direct messages, or a chatting platform that is 100% public? The dream would be to disable DMs from Slack so we can keep rolling with that, but it doesn’t look like that’s an option yet.
