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!
