Brand new workspaces need guidance getting off the ground. Consider writing a code of conduct to help members feel safe and welcome.
Set up your workspace
Firstly, you’ll need to create a workspace for your conference. Then consider taking the following steps:
Let interested attendees request a Slack account Design a form for attendees to request invitations to your workspace. (You could use a service like Typeform, Wufoo or Google Docs to manage this.) Make sure some invitations are accepted before sending more.
Fine-tune your announcement settings We suggest restricting the useof @channel, @here and @everyone to workspace owners and admins. This should help to reduce noise for attendees.
Tip: News to share? Workspace admins can use @everyone in the #announcements channel to notify all attendees of updates.
We suggest running your conference workspace for at least three months:
⏳One month before
Attendees can introduce themselves and organise plans ahead of time.
🗓 During the conference
Slack can serve as a central hub of contact over the course of your event. Attendees can make last-minute plans and continue discussions. You can monitor channels to answer questions and keep an eye out for issues.
⌛️One month after
Attendees can continue to share learning and follow up with peers.
Start with some useful channels
In your Settings, you can choose to let members create channels on their own. (You can archive or delete channels if you need to.) Reduce clutter by limiting channels to those created by organisers.
Note: Add your most important channels to your default list. New members will join these channels automatically.
