Once you're in, you'll see a box at the top for Welcome new members, press Edit Message.

Setting up your welcome message

A modal will pop up, simply press the toggle in the top right corner to turn on your welcome message.

Below it you'll see a preview of your message. Press Edit Text on the right to customise it to your liking.

If you'd like to use formatting you can be adding it just like you would in Slack's. Learn how to use Slack's mrkdwn language.

Testing your message

When you're ready press Send Me a Test DM. This will send your message directly to you, and you alone in Slack so you can be sure you're happy with the formatting.
