Something that might help you when orders start flowing is our Slack Integration, which enables notifications to the Slack channel of your preference and keeps you up to date on your team's Sunlight activities.
📣 Communicate what Sunlight is to your team.
When everything is set up, the next thing you might want to do is let your team know about Sunlight and how it works within your company. You may have internal rules in place on how they should spend their personal allowance, or simply want to let them know that they have free reign over their learning budget. Whatever the case, we offer you a template of an Internal Communications Email, with which you'll be able to inform them about our platform. Furthermore, they will want to know how to get on spending their Sunlight, and this short video is ideal to give them a general overview of the platform.
