Slack Group Template for Apartment Buildings

I created a Slack group for my building to help feel more connected locally while in quarantine at home. Here’s the template for the steps I took:

  1. Create a new group on
  2. Upload a group app icon
  3. Create a few channels
  4. Set up welcome messages
  5. Post flyers so neighbors know the group exists

I made a template of the flyer and messaging. Take whatever is useful for you! Here’s to more connectivity in these isolating times.
