I am seeking advice from people who have created Slack apps and submitted them to the Slack App Directory. @mirv , @tobyc, @noahwbragg, @evaneykelen, @MarcelHagedoorn, @karmabot - would love your input.
I am working on a Slack app. The app, Interruption Buster, allows you to flag messages to follow up on them later. See here: https://www.interruptionbuster.com/
Since it will take time to polish the app to the standard required by the Slack App Directory, and since there is no guarantee of being admitted once I submit, I am looking for ways to validate the need/product prior to submitting to the Slack App Directory?
How did you validate demand prior to submitting?
Are there other online communities where people who tend to install Slack apps tend to hang out? Perhaps that would be a good way to connect with the right audience.
What are some of the people who installed your Slack apps? Do they tend to be system admins / IT people, developers, just anybody, etc.? Are there ways to identify the people who install lots of Slack apps at particular companies?
Thank you all very much for your input.
