messaging tool

Raven is where your teammates engage.

Organise discussions in channels. React with emojis. Share files, images, code snippets, and more.


Organise group chats in channels

Create channels and control who can participate in your conversations.

Private channels are secure member-only conversations.

Public channels allow anyone to view the messages, but only members can send messages in it.

Open channels are for your entire organisation - with everyone being able to view and send messages in it.

Send messages to your peers

Reach out to other members in your team in one-on-one private conversations via direct messages.

Have notes to keep? You can also send a message to yourself.

Message actions a right click away
