How it Works

Slack

What is Slack?

Slack is a channel-based messaging platform designed for businesses and organizations. The individual site that you access is called a workspace. 

Communications within a workspace is organized into related topics called channels. 

Slack is the official community platform for the 2020 Section W-1S Conclave. 

Registered participants should have received an email invite to join the “2020 Section W-1S Conclave” workspace. 

Once your account is created, you can access the platform and start engaging with Arrowmen from around the section. 

The Slack platform is how many of the event-wide game achievements will be completed.

Need assistance? Check out the Slack Help Center or message us using the live chat on this website, messaging us on social media or send an email to communications@sectionw1s.org.

Connecting to Slack

Registered participants should have received an email invitation to join the “2020 Section W-1S Conclave” workspace as a guest. This email will be sent to the email address you used to register for conclave. 

To connect to the Slack workspace, follow the below steps. 

  1. Open the invitation email.  You may need to check your spam folder. The email will be from “Slack” and will have “Section W-1S has invited you to work with them in Slack” as the subject line.

  2. Click the “Join Now” button

  3. On the next screen, enter your first and last name and create your account password and click “Create Account”



  4. Start engaging with other participants!

Using Slack

Now that you are logged into the conclave Slack workspace, it is time to make the most of the conclave experience by interacting with other participants. 

While not required, we encourage you to download the Slack desktop and/or mobile applications. It is possible to post and interact without doing this, however, the apps allow for notifications even if your browser is closed so that you don’t miss out on anything. 

Check out this Getting Started Guide

Your profile, settings, and preferences can be accessed from the left toolbar (or “you” tab on mobile).

Conversations are organized into channels. All the channels can be found on the left toolbar (or home tab on mobile). Each channel had a specific purpose or topic. In most cases, it should be easy to tell what the topic is based on the channel name. If you are unsure, click on the channel and view the description or topic for the channel. 

There are two types of channels: 

Public Channels: These channels are open channels that any full member can join on their own. Guests will be added to these channels upon log in to the workspace. A public channel will have a “#” symbol in front of the channel name. (e.g. #announcements)

Private Channels: These channels are locked so only invited members can join. For conclave, each participant will be added to a private channel for their lodge and chapter to interact with other members of their local OA community. You will be added to these channels by an admin. Private channels will have a padlock symbol in front of the channel name.

Posting

To post, navigate to the appropriate channel and make your post (bottom toolbar). You can include standard formatting such as bold, italics, bullets, numbering and links as well as emojis, and file attachments. 

If you make a mistake, you may edit your post after it has been sent by hovering over the post and clicking on the three vertical dots and clicking edit message.

Additional Tips

Here are some additional tips for using Slack:

  • USE THREADS! To help keep channels less cluttered, please use thread if you are replying to someone’s post. This better organizes the posts. To use the thread, hover over the post you want to comment on and click on the chat bubble icon that says “Reply in Thread.”
  • React to posts using emojis by hovering over a message and clicking on the reactions icon.
  • Search: The best feature of Slack is the search feature. If you want to find something specific, use the search bar to find it. 
  • Mention Others: You can mention other people within a channel by typing “@” and then their name. This will tag them in the message and typically triggers a notification (depending how they have it set up).

Need Help?

We know that Slack may be a little confusing for some at first. That is okay. We are here to help.

Achievements

The conclave-wide game is all about completing achievements and earning points. 

Completing Achievements

To complete an achievement all you have to do is complete whatever requirement(s) are listed for the achievement. All achievements are listed below. Some achievements will be simple (e.g. view a video) and some will be more difficult or time consuming (e.g. do a task and post a photo). 

Once an achievement has been completed, you must record it in order to receive your points. 

Recording Achievements

Recording your achievements in the conclave-wide game requires honest, self-reporting of completed achievements. Remember, a Scout is trustworthy

NOTE: If you do not record and update your completed achievements throughout the event, you risk your points not being counted in the competition.

To record an achievement and receive points you must fill out the “Conclave Wide Game Record” form. The form can also be found by clicking on the “Record Points Here” button at the top of this page. 

The first time you fill out the form, you will receive a confirmation email that will contain a link to update your response. Use the edit response link in the email to update your completed achievements throughout the event.

Each time you update your submission, you will see your new points total. We will updated the game leaderboard periodically throughout the event.
