Using Slack on your computer and mobile devices
On the Web – You can use Slack in your web browser at kiondaga.slack.com. Then, you will be redirected to the webapp and you can communicate on there. This option is great for computers that you cannot install apps to or shared computers. However, you will not receive notifications for new messages.
Using the Desktop App – You can download the Slack app at slack.com/download. This will download the most up-to-date version for your operating system. Once installed, you can login to the Lodge workspace. Optionally you can enable it to run in the background, and don't forget to enable notifications!
Using the Mobile App – You can download the Slack mobile app at slack.com/download. This will take you to the proper version for your device, whether it be Apple or Android. This is a great option because you can take your lodge conversations with you on the go. Don't forget to enable notifications so you are always in the loop.
Using Channels, Private Channels, and Direct Messages
There are many channels on our Workspace to enhance conversations and ensure that relevant communications are always taking place. Channels are organized into many public and private channels. By default, users are added to most public channels including #1-general. This channel should be reserved for announcements and is read-only. Ideas for any committee are always welcome in #2-ideas, but off topic discussions should take place in #2-random.
Each committee also has one or multiple private channels for relevant discussions. These channels always have at least two adults added to them in order to comply with Youth Protection Guidelines.
If you need a new channel (public or private), please contact the current Slack administrator.
Direct Messages – DM's are a great way to get in touch with a single person or a small group of people. When creating new DM's, ensure that there is no 1-on-1 communication with a youth and adult member. The Slack Administrator, Adviser, and Chief are always willing to be added to any conversation to comply with these guidelines.
