About this Guided Project

Learn step-by-step

In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:

  1. Open a free Slack account, create a unique workspace, and familiarize yourself with its layout and review the types of resources available on the platform to enhance organizational communications.

  2. Set availability and status to indicate to others when they can expect to hear from you. Explore strategies to tailor status and notification settings to support productivity and team effectiveness.

  3. Pause notifications and use them to boost productivity. Handle notifications on the fly and discover options for automating what notifications you receive, and how and when you receive them.

  4. Create your Slack profile and set your preferences by thoughtfully considering the most effective way to present yourself and your value in organizational communications.

  5. Flesh out your work environment by defining and creating public and private channels.

  6. Explore more ways to invite others to a workspace and its default channels.

  7. Use direct messaging and connect people in Slack to boost the effectiveness of messaging through strategic use of channel and individual tags.
