Once you've planned your rollout, designed your information architecture, imported your content, and set up any integrations, it's time to announce the rollout to your team! This is an especially important step, because it sets the tone for how the rollout will proceed. 

You can customize your announcement however you like, but we recommend ensuring that it address 3 key points: 

  1. What is Slab? (It's your team's new knowledge hub!)
  2. Why are we using it? (Slab keeps your content accessible and relevant!) 
  3. What are the expectations and next steps? (Sign up for an account, schedule  a training, start creating content, etc.)

You can find some sample announcement emails below!

We're excited to announce the launch of Slab as our new internal wiki! In an effort to improve our documentation practices, we'll be be using Slab as our source of truth for team knowledge. It'll help us ensure that we keep our content accessible, fresh, and useful.

Your team has been chosen to lead the charge — you'll be getting set up on Slab first! You'll soon receive an email with instructions for creating an account. Please do this by May 1st.

From there, we'll be holding training sessions to start learning the ropes. You can sign up for a session here.

We're looking forward to building our team's long-term memory together! 💪

Team lead follow-up 

Hi Taylor,

I'm excited for us to start using Slab! 

Now that you're all set up with an account, let's dive right in and start creating some content. Please take a look at this training video to get an overview of the product. 

Then, I'd like you to focus on creating a Mission & Values post for our team. This should be organized under the Company topic. You can find more documentation on creating posts here

Let me know if you have any questions! 

Best,

Rebecca
