DFS Army Slack Chat Tutorial

The DFS Army VIP Slack Chat can be found at dfsarmyhq.slack.com When you initially join the DFS Army you will get an invitation to join emailed to you. Follow this email to set up your Slack Account. The next thing you will want to do is look over the slack chat rules.

When you first enter the slack chat you will see a lot of channels. On a PC/Mac it will look similar to this. The channels are listed on the left-hand side.

On mobile you will need to first click on the icon in the top left of the screen to get to the channels.

       

Each sport has it’s own general discussion channel where we discuss everything related to that sport. These include:

  • #nfl-talk
  • #nba-talk

Each sport has it’s own news and notes channel. This is the starting point members look to for DFS Army content in that particular sport. Coaches that do slate breakdowns and notes will post them here as well as in their own channels. In addition, we grab the most important injury updates and post them here with explanations of how to interpret that information for DFS purposes. These channels are the most important stop for any sport. Please do not post in these channels (read-only).
