When you sign into Slack after being away for a while, you might find an overwhelming number of unread messages. That's normal. Just rememeber: you can't read everything.
When you join Slack, you are automatically subscribed to several main channels, which include:
#hivebuzz | #random-chatter | #hive-fund | #social-media | #events-calendar | #slack-woes
You can always
leave a channel if you no longer want to be a part of those conversations, or you can
mute a channel if you don't want to receive notifications.
Go to the channel and click the channel name at the top of the chat feed to reveal a dropdown menu. From there, you can leave the channel... or you can also change the channel notifications to mute the channel.
Click on the
CHANNELS heading on the left hand side, then select a channel from the pop up window. You will be given a preview of that channel. To join and add it to the list of channels you follow, make sure to add yourself.
Turn on your Email notifications under "Email Preferences"
Setting up your email notifications can help you stay in the loop without having to login. Set notifications to arrive "once an hour at most" and you'll get a summary of what you missed, if anything, in the last hour.
