Channels Drive Slack
So the first thing you should know is that Channels are the driving force of what you'll be centering around in MD|slack. Once you sign up, you are automatically entered into our default channels: #general, #prayer-requests, #urgent-needs, #tech-support, and #events. These channels will provide you the basics to dive in and start talking to other MDers. To access the full list of channels, swipe from left to right in the slack app.
Each #channel you join has a description. You can see the description by tapping the #channel name above the conversation. There you'll find the purpose of the channel, as well as some guidelines as to what you can post in that particular channel.
Finding and Joining #channels
There are more than just the default list of channels available to you on MD|slack. To see a full list of channels that are available to join, slide out the menu to the left and hit the "+" next to "channels". This will bring up the "Browse Channels" menu where you can see a full list of public channels available for you to join. Browse away and join the ones you're interested in!
As always, feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions (or post them in the #tech-support channel in MD|slack!).
