Need help joining App Academy Slack Workspace

Hi All, I just joined the open academy free program and would like to access our slack workspace but keep receiving an error every time I click the slack icon on the top right corner of the screen to access it. I think I need an email address to join the workspace - can anyone advise how I can get one?

Thank you for your help!

I don’t think you need one I’m using my regular email to access it

But that’s the problem - I use my normal email address and am unable to access it =(

Hey Tanuja!

So sorry for the inconvenience getting set up with slack! Slack has a great resource for joining workspaces here. Following the instructions at that link you should be able to see a list of all the Slack workspaces that you have been invited to. To reiterate, you do not need an email address, instead please use the personal email address that you used to sign up for App Academy Open.


HI Brendan,

I just did that and followed the link. I then chose to log in via Google and used my account but all I see is the below - I think I need to be invited please to the app academy workspace. Can you help with this?


Hi Brendan

Hope you are well,

I seem to be having the same issue as Tanuja, It is saying to " Contact the workspace administrator at app-academy-open"

Would you be able to help with this, please?

Thank you in advance
Kind regards

Ditto, I’m having the same issue. Following is what I’ve tried:

  1. First, I checked my email address using “Profile” button at open.appacademy .io
  2. Then, I clicked on the slack button at the above URL which takes me to: Sign up for a new account | Slack. From there, I signed up using the same email as my profile and got the same error as OP.
  3. After that, I tried following the instructions in the link that Brendan provided but it says there are no workspace invites
  4. Lastly, I tried the following URL but it tells me " email adress doesn’t have an account on this workspace.":

To add, I’ve tried logging in via Google button + typing in my email address manually with same results.

Is there anything else I can try?
