Slack Usage Tips
- Join the appropriate channels to stay connected and informed based on your chapter role or interest. Note: As you shift roles during your tenure, you will need to personally shift channels. The administrators of the workspace will not move users into different channels.
- Engage in as many posting as possible – answer the question, share examples, connect people who might know the answer. It only works if people answer as well as ask!
- When asking a question or sharing something in a channel, include “@channel” to send notifications to other channel members about the new post.
- Manage your own notifications by clicking on your name/preferences in the upper left corner.
- Reminder: Direct messages are private; administrators of the workspace cannot read them.
- If you are having problems joining/using the Slack workplace and channels, or if you need assistance from the AMA Support Center in resolving a specific issue for your chapter, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
