We use Slack to communicate as a group. All of our behind the scenes and organisation work happens here and it's a great place to stay up to date on the ins and outs and find out where to get involved.
Why do we use Slack?
Help to maintain boundaries between Nunhead Knocks and our personal lives
Communicate en masse and with specific teams working on the behind the scenes
Integrate software that does a lot of the admin so we can react more quickly
Keep people's information secure by having private channels with key people

How to use Slack
Slack looks a bit complex at first, but don't worry, it's easy to get the hang of!
Here are the key things you'll want to know
The workspace is broken down into channels - both public and private. Generally, these are used to discuss specific themes, for example, good news, marketing, it support or fundraising.
You can join public channels and you'll get notifications about any messages.
Direct messages can be sent individually or to a group. These are private and no-one else can join these groups.
You can @ someone to let them know you've mentioned them. This is incredibly useful!
