Adding Non-UMICH Email Addresses as Guests to a U-M Slack Channel

Environment

U-M Slack

Issue

How do I add a guest to a U-M Slack channel using a non-UMICH email address?

Resolution

Anyone who is not eligible to be a U-M Slack member may be added as a guest to a single channel. Single-channel guests must be added with non-@umich.edu email addresses (even if they have an @umich.edu email, such as alumni and retirees). Multi-channel guests are currently unavailable.

Follow the directions as detailed in the Slack Help Center: https://slack.com/help/articles/201330256-Invite-new-members-to-your-workspace

IMPORTANT NOTE: Make sure to do "invite as guest," not member.
