CONNECT Tip: Chat Channels

Chat channels are a great way to engage and communicate with your org members! In order to create a new chat channel, click on your student organization's group page (not the page you manage the organization from) and on the top right click on the three dots. On the dropdown menu, there will be the option to create a channel. These channel's can be used for chatting with other members, discussing topics, or anything you can come up with!
