[ announcement ] New Slack Team

There has been a generic CFML Slack team started in the community. Slack is a popular chat client that you can use on your PC, phone, or browser. This is a community effort, not an Ortus one, but there is a “#box-products” channel in there. If you want to chat about any of the Box stuff (or anything CFML related) you can sign up here:

https://cfml-slack.herokuapp.com/

I’ll try to hang out but encourage others to answer questions as well. Remember, if you need immediate or guaranteed support, check out the Ortus Support Services.

Thanks!

Is there a team domain we can use with our Slack clients? (ie. cfml.slack.com)

That’s the one. Just sign in with your email/pass in your slack client to that domain.

My client (standard Mac client) does not allow me to use the herokuapp.com domain. It must be XYZ.slack.com.

I signed up using the web client (via the herokuapp.com link) and then told Slack to email me a list of the groups I’m in. It appears this group is simply cfml.slack.com.

The real domain is cfml.slack.com. The heroku domain is just a shim site designed to automatically send you an invite when you sign up. Alack is invite only, but this prevents a real person from having to send an invite to everyone who wants it. The little heroku app is set up to automatically invite anyone who fills out the form but it is unrelated to the actual Slack team.

Thanks!
