What is Slack?
Slack is an app that allows an organization to have group chats and instant messages. It's kind of like a Church-only Facebook group. There are different channels that you can join where you can chat about different topics (prayer requests, for example) and you can also easily send Direct Messages to people We'd love for you to join the VCC Slack Community.
You can download slack on any device, including a computer. We recommend downloading the app on your phone. On any device go to https://slack.com/download and the appropriate version for your device will download.
Important: Please allow Slack to send notifications to your device. This is so that if someone sends you a direct message, or one of the administrators has an important announcement, you'll be notified.
If you're using more than one device, you can add your account to each device:https://vcclife.slack.com.
Why Slack? + Tutorial Videos!
Note that the Slack app was recently updated (after these tutorial videos were recorded). These will still be helpful to give you an idea of what is possible in the app, but will look a bit different than the current app's interface. We'll rerecord these when we get a chance!
Once you are in Slack use the #help_with_tech channel for help. That way, anyone who knows the answer who is in that channel will be able to help.
