Slack is a communication platform that allows users to communicate and access communications on an array of topics set by the members of the slack channels.
To join the ReShare slack channels, you will need to join the Folio Slack Channel. You can request access using FOLIO’s automated web form at slack-invitation.folio.org.
You will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with an invitation to Join slack. Click on the Join Now button to start the process of joining the Folio Slack channel with your existing Slack account or to create a Slack account.
You can either create an account, or use an existing google account to create your slack account. Choose whichever works best for you.
Once you have created your account, you will be automatically signed into slack. You will also receive an email from Slack confirming your new account and some useful tips on how to use and navigate Slack.
When signed in, you will see that you have different ways of communicating in Slack: You can communicate in Slack Channels and you can send direct messages.
We recommend joining the reshare-general channel. To find and join the channel, select “Channel browser” and then search or browse for reshare-general. Hover over the channel name and select “Join” or select the channel name to preview the conversations.
To send direct messages, select the “Direct Messages” link on the bottom left and search for the user you wish to message directly.
