✊ HOW TO TEXT WITH OPEN PROGRESS TEXT TROOP ✊
👩💻HOW IT ALL WORKS TOGETHER 👨💻
Join our SLACK TEAM
You will join Slack to communicate with the Text Troop. Slack is a real time chat space that we use as our communication headquarters! You will use Slack to ask questions, request text assignments, talk to other texters, and get feedback on your texts.
LEARN HOW WE TEXT
Open Progress Text Troop texts with TextOut - a peer to peer texting web application that we use to reach thousands of voters.
Slack* and TextOut both live in your internet browser like Chrome or Firefox. To get to TextOut, you will enter through our Slack team (see Step 1). All you have to remember to ever start texting is, “Make it to the Slack team!”
*PRO TIP: 🔥We suggest downloading the app version of Slack as it is a bit faster, and can be downloaded right to your toolbar. 🔥
