Texas A&M University has a campus license for the Slack communication platform. With this tool, divisions and teams can set up channels for direct communication with group members. Users can also send direct messages to users and join other channels throughout Texas A&M. Slack can integrate with other apps, including Google Drive, Gmail, Zoom, OneDrive, Microsoft Teams and more.

Getting Started

Sign in using your NetID@tamu.edu at https://tamu.slack.com to create your account in the TAMU Slack workspace.  After signing in using single sign-on (SSO), other Slack members will be able to invite you to their channel and you are ready to begin participating in conversations in Slack.

Help and Support

General Slack documentation is available at https://slack.com/help
