Why do we need a signup form?
Slack works by invite only, so in order to get you into LaraChat we need your email first. We know it’s a bit inconvenient but we feel that the benefits of Slack make it totally worthwhile. It really is a great service!
Help! I didn’t get my invite.
Uh oh! Sorry about that! We’ve noticed that the most common reason for this is because of a minor typo in the email. Please keep in mind that invites are running on a cron that happens every minute or two, so it isn’t instant.
If you still haven’t gotten your invite after a few minutes send us a DM on twitter @larachatslack and we’ll help you out! :)
