Add ClassCred in 5 easy steps.

Step 1: Go to Apps & search for ClassCred

If you do not see Apps, select Browse Slack and then select Apps.

Step 2: Click Add & follow the instructions

You will be sent to Slack and asked to approve the app. Once approved you will be directed back to Slack.

Step 3: Access ClassCred Messages

Once installed you will be directed to the ClassCred Messages page. This is where ClassCred will send you messages. For example, if you receive a fire from another user, you will get a message on this page.

Step 4: Setup ClassCred

To get ClassCred working you need to add it to your Slack channels. To do this, access the Instructor’s Site from the ClassCred homepage by clicking on the Instructor login button. Only instructors have access.

An onboarding menu is provided on the homepage of the Instructor site. Once you add your channels, the app will be functional. However, for best results, it is highly recommended to go through all of the onboarding steps.

🦉Tip: When adding channels, it is highly recommended to select Auto-join channels. This will ensure that ClassCred is in every channel. This way if you add a channel later, ClassCred will be added automatically.

Step 5: Start using the app

Go in Slack and give a 🔥 . For example, type the following to give a 🔥 to Rowan .

That’s it, ClassCred should be ready to go and active in all channels. Have fun!
