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!
  • Upload images, documents, links and more!
