This is a Draft.
Set up Slack Communications
In your smartphone’s app store, find the slack app and download it to your device.
Get an invite to join the OpenEMR Slack chat by navigating to this site:
How we keep in touch
And request an invite by selecting the below highlighted link
Then on the page it redirects you to, enter your email address and click “Get My Invite”
Then check your email and follow the “Join Now” link.
It should redirect you to a page where you’ll set your Slack user display name and a password for that specific slack community.
Uncheck the box if you wish and click “Create Account.”
This will launch the slack OpenEMR community inside your web browser but we’ll want to add the community to the slack app that you just installed. Launch the slack app on your computer and click the plus button on the leftmost navigation pane.
Then select “Add a new workspace.”
This will open a new page in your web browser. Type openemr in the “your-workspace-url” field and click continue.
Now you should see the OpenEMR logo pop up on the leftmost navigation pane in your laptop slack installation.
Inside the OpenEMR slack community there a number of public and private channels.
Open the general channel and say hello if you’d like.
Take a look at the other public channels in the community by clicking the plus button next to “channels” and select Browse channels.
This will bring up the Channel Browser, take a look at the list of public channels.
If you see one you’re interesting in following, click it to preview the contents. If you’re not already a member of the channel it should ask if you’d like to join the channel.
Now go ahead and repeat the process on the slack app on your smartphone to log into the OpenEMR community.
