Slack is a popular workplace communications tools. If your organization uses Slack, you can Broadcast from LiveSafe into a Slack Channel in order to maximize the reach of Broadcast Messages and help spread the word about LiveSafe.
Quick Aside: the LiveSafe team has more experience with Slack, and we can confirm that this works in that partiuclar tool, but this may also work for other workplace communication tools. If you use another tool and confirm that the components of this process are available there, leave a comment below or contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see if this can also be set up in that tool!
How to set this up:
- Use the Slack Email App to set up a special email address and customize the channel of your choice where you would like emails to appear.
- Add a new Contact-Only User, with the special email address created through the Slack Email App.
- When you send a Broadcast Message to your organization, include this Contact-Only User in the Broadcast, and send the Broadcast message via Email.
- The Broadcasts will be distributed to your organization via the Slack Email App to the channel of your choice.
Please note: if any issues emerge with the Slack Email App, you will have to troubleshoot those issues with Slack and the creators of this app. The LiveSafe team will be able to troubleshoot with issues solely related to Broadcast Message creation and distribution. LiveSafe did not develop this App and cannot verify its long-term quality. LiveSafe can simply verify that at the time of this writing the App is actively used by LiveSafe organizations for distributing Broadcast Messages.
