Slack brings all your team's communication together, giving everyone a shared workspace where conversations are organized and accessible. Bigelow has a shared slack workspace that anyone with a Bigelow email address can join.
- Go to bigelowlab.slack.com
- Click "Sign in with Google"
Join an existing channel
Your Slack workspace is comprised of channels. You’ll use channels to hold most of your conversations with other members. They can be organized around anything — departments, projects, or even office locations — and you can create as many as you need. Every workspace starts with two channels by default: #general and #random.
- In the sidebar (left), click on the word "Channels" (not the plus icon next to it).
- Scroll down the list or enter the channel name in the search box.
- Click on the channel that you want to join.
- Slack will show you a preview of the channel. If you still want to join, click on the green "Join Channel" button at the bottom of the screen. This will add the channel to your channel list.
Create a new channel
- In the sidebar (left), click on the plus icon next to "Channels".
- NOTE: by default all new channels are public. You can change public channels to private channels, but not vice-versa.
- Enter a name (all lowercase without spaces or periods), purpose (i.e. description; optional).
- Click the green "Create Channel" button.
When you need to quickly chat or check in with teammates, you can send them a direct message (DM). Direct messages are best for ad-hoc, quick discussions. These conversations are only visible to and searchable by you and the other members you DM. You can DM just one person, or start a group message with up to 8 other people
- Click on the person who you would like to direct message under the "Direct Messages" heading in your sidebar
- If you do not see the person listed there, click on the plus icon next to "Direct Messages" and select the person who you would like to message.
- If the person does not use Slack yet (is not in the list), click on the "+ Invite People" button under your Direct Messages list.
- Write your message an hit enter/return to send.
You can download the Slack app for MacOS or Windows. This makes it even easier to manage your conversations and channels.
