Re: Looking for a communications tool

I have had little luck with convincing my community to use Slack or Discord. 
Half a dozen folks signed on to it but it’s not enough users to make it useful 
as a replacement for emails to our community email addresses. Folks here love 
using that email! When we switched over to Zoom after the pandemic, I organized 
and hosted several how-to clinics and info sessions. A similar process could be 
utilized for orienting a community to Slack, but in the case of Zoom, people 
understood it was critical to their staying connected.
