How do I set up slack so that I can be notified of prayer times?

You need a incoming web hook url. The easiest way to do this is to create a new app in slack and activate incoming webhooks. We just need the webhook url which you need to specify under settings. If you dont see slack listed as an alert type when you are editing a subscription its because we dont have a web hook url for you.

Webhook urls are just urls that are set up by you. Their allow information to be posted by salahtimes to a channel in slack. The channel is specified by you when you create the webhook.

How do I set up email so that I can be notified of prayer times?

You need to ensure that we have an email address for you under settings.
