Encountered a problem that needs solving

Steven Hylands @shylands

I run Impact Makers - a Slack community for tech makers who want to help with the climate emergency.

As the community grew I noticed a problem where people would join and not stick around. I decided to speak to a few other community organisers and they had this problem too. I wondered if there was a way to re-engage with these members, reminding them of the value my community offered, so they know what they’ve missed and can return to get involved.

Unfortunately Slack does not provide a way to achieve this that reaches outside of the Slack setting. So I jotted down an idea of how I could achieve this myself to return to another day :)
