How to Accept Your Invitation to Slack

Welcome to Slack @ Dartmouth! Below you'll find an example of the process to accept your Slack invitation and successfully log in to your Slack account. By default, if you are not being invited to Slack via a course workspace, you will join the Dartmouth College Community (or your group/community) workspace where you can communicate with other members of the Dartmouth Community on Slack.


Step 1: Slack Invitation Email

To accept your invitation to Slack, start by selecting the green 'Join Now' button. You'll be taken to a browser window that will guide you through joining the Dartmouth College Community workspace in Slack. It's best if this is done in an incognito browser window (you may need to copy and paste the link into one you open directly yourself.)


Step 2: Sign In to Slack 

In order to log in to Slack, you'll need to authenticate through Duo as you do with other Dartmouth platforms. Select "Sign in with Dartmouth SSO (Duo)", then use your netId and password designated for Duo to complete this part of the process.


Step 3: Read and Accept Dartmouth's Custom Terms of Service for Slack

Be sure to read and accept the Custom Terms of Service before the first time you log in to Slack. You can also read these terms separately on our Services Portal here.


Step 4: Launch Slack from the Workspace Directory

You're in! To open the Dartmouth College Community workspace in a browser window and get started collaborating in Slack, select "Lauch in Slack". For the best Slack experience, we encourage you to download the desktop and mobile versions here.
