The Harvest Exchange:


Welcome to the Harvest Exchange

Here are the details for your new Slack community.

Harvest Exchange Community

Using our community platform:

User Profile

Build out your Slack profile with accurate information about yourself and a clear profile photo to help other people in the community learn more about you.

Slack Etiquette

Use the right channel

Our different Slack channels exist with a specific topic/purpose. It’s important that we make it possible for members of the community to opt-in to various types of conversations by keeping conversations around specific topics in their appropriate channels.

Use Threads
The best way to keep conversations coherent in Slack is to use threads. Here are some guidelines on how to use threads effectively:

  1. Type your question out as one message rather than separate messages
  2. Leverage Slack's edit functionality if you realize you forgot to add something to your question rather than adding new messages.

Use direct mentions mindfully. Slack will notify someone every time you mention them. Before you mention someone, make sure that you want that person to act on something, and make it clear what that is.

The @channel and @here functions in Slack are disabled for everyone except admins.

Public Channels vs Direct Messaging
Unless you have someone’s express permission to contact them directly, do not directly message members of this community to solicit help, sell a product, or recruit for a role.

We highly value the time community members put into helping each other, and we have precisely zero tolerance for people who abuse their access to experienced professionals. If you are being directly messaged by members of the community asking for assistance without your consent, let us know.
