    Introduction to Slack

    Introduction to Slack

    Welcome back to LTDO TV! Slack is an application that can be used on your phone, your computer or tablet device to enhance collaboration, information and project management.  You can find what you need quickly and this can be a hub of conversations.  LTDO Teams and many campaigns are starting to use this because of the need to collaborate and manage large projects with a lot of people. Emails and texts are cumbersome and don't allow project management as well. If you are in or want to join an LTDO team, or have questions please email lisletownshipdems@gmail.com.
    Check out these helpful documents if you have questions.
