CSRA uses some specific tools for internal communications. This guidance explains:
- what tools we use
- how you can get access to them
CSRA uses Slack so that volunteers can keep in touch.
Access CSRA Slack
CSRA’s Slack address is ukcsra.slack.com.
Join the CSRA Slack
If you want to join our Slack channel, you’ll need an invite. Anyone volunteering for CSRA can request an invite.
You can request an invite by emailing email@example.com. You must email us from a .gov.uk email address.
CSRA uses Google Apps for its email, document sharing and cloud storage.
Access Google Apps
How to get a CSRA Google account
Google Apps isn’t free for us; whilst we’re a voluntary organisation, we’re not a registered charity. We can’t afford to give everyone who volunteers for us a Google Apps account, so we restrict access to our senior team. If you think you should have a Google Apps account, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can’t have a CSRA Google Apps account, don’t worry; we can still share documents and email with you if you sign up for a free Google account.
