    You guys have all the backing infrastructure and services ready to go, all you need to do is spin up a UI/brand that's business-friendly and price yourselves a dollar cheaper than Slack.

    In my experience The Business thinks that Slack is "too expensive! *gasp* Seven dollars a month!" and Technical Users are on the fence about changing jobs vs actually using MS Teams. Discord is always suggested as an option by the Technical side, but always rejected due to the gaming-centric branding/UI. I think that you could really carve off a tasty chunk of this market with a minimal amount of risk or effort.

    Sure seems like a better bet than hoping the VC cash never stops flowing. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Interestingly, I haven't seen anyone mention what I consider to be the #1 obstacle to using Discord (as it exists today) for business purposes: the Terms of Service. Yes, the "game-y" logo and branding and whatnot might be a turn off for many businesses, but I'd hope that the fact that for-profit use is explicitly forbidden by the ToS and that Discord might be well within their rights to sue your company for part of whatever revenues could be linked to the unauthorized use for their app.

    Debido a Covid-19, propuse a mi universidad usar Discord para clases virtuales, por supuesto, dijeron que no, ya que todos tenemos un dominio @uniempresarial de Microsoft Outlook. Entonces, estamos usando Microsoft Teams, lo que me permite grabar las reuniones (se pueden incluir), cargar archivos en una pestaña separada (esto ya se puede hacer en un canal de texto). Algo interesante es poder usar espacios de almacenamiento en la nube, ya que son OneDrive, Box y Google Drive.
    Lo más sorprendente de esto es que en Teams una persona puede convertirse en el organizador de una reunión que, después de agregar a los participantes, aparecerá la opción de unirse a través del calendario integrado de Microsoft, algo que es muy bueno para establecer llamadas con el equipo de trabajo y en caso de que no quiera usar esto para las empresas, sería muy útil hacer horarios de juego con amigos y que el calendario le recuerde, además, la notificación parece que la reunión es ahora.

    With Zoom starting to look like a stovetop hot dog when it comes to their shady practices, sooner rather than later would be a very opportunistic time for Discord to jump on the business bandwagon.
    Like another poster said, having a second app would be irritating to some. Maybe Discord could have some sort of "Business & Home hours" setting that auto hides servers depending on the user set time and day, and perhaps even changes to a pre-set business display name, or appends a user set business friendly nickname to the end of their tag.

    In terms of the "unprofessional" part of the logo. You can use a script to replace it, or an addblocker ( if you are using the webapp version)

    If you are annoyed by having game servers on your discord at work. Create a new account and don't join any other channel.

    For me the only thing I wish Discord moved into the main interface was direct messaging. Direct messaging is something by design on discord that is moved to the background to be done every once in a while. The searches are performed on a per person basis.

    Slack has more integration options which is pretty cool and all, but have of them wouldn't be necessary if ease of joining a "workplace" was lower. Making SMS, emails unnecessary internally. Slack's settings and permissions are annoying to change as you have to straddle between their website and the client / webapp. Discord allows you to do it on the fly from inside the app or client. Discord has better search operators within a server: "has:file" "from: Xzila#1234". Discord font sizes and colors are easier to read. HOWEVER slack allows for the starting of threads from posts within a channel which is a pretty cool feature.

    @Xzila, from all the jibber jabber in this thread I love, your comment stand out. Direct Messaging is really hard to use and really useful. Now that gaming is taking the realms of work, This thread discussion is becoming even more pointless.

    1 Year and over 40 comments later and the answer is still to just use teams.

     

    Literally all the concerns with branding, app cohesion, SSO and enterprise app compatibility, is addressed by using an E level office account.
