Login & Password
Q. How do I log in to my Slenky account?
A. To log into your account, simply click the icon in the top right corner of your screen (It’s next to the magnifying glass) - This should take you to the login page where you’ll be able to enter your Username and Password.
Q, I didn't receive a confirmation code or email to verify my account?
A. If you can’t find any of our confirmation emails, check your Spam or Junk mail box. Sometimes our emails get sent to the wrong place and end up in there. If it still doesn’t turn up, try typing “Slenky” in your mail “Search bar”. If that still doesn’t do the trick, try signing up again - make sure you enter your details correctly so that anything we send out goes to the right address or phone number.
Q. How do I logout of Slenky?
A. Same as with logging in, if you want to logout and stop receiving updates and notifications for a while, just click on the icon in the top right of the screen next to the magnifying glass. Click ‘logout’ and you’re done.
Q. I think my account was hacked or someone is using it without my permission?
A. If you think your account has been hacked and someone else is using your account without your permission, head down
Your account may have been hacked if you notice:
- Your email or password has been changed
- Your account’s preferences & settings have been changed
- You receive notification of applications for Shots you don’t remember applying for
If any of these are the case head to the bottom of the page and click on the ‘Help’ button. Click on the ‘Report an issue’ button and follow the instructions on the the page.
Q. I don't know if I still have a Slenky account. How can I find out?
A. Once you set up an account it will always be there unless you decide to delete it. You should receive an email from us confirming that you’ve successfully set-up your account when you first sign up. The best way to make sure you’re account is still active from then on, is to fill in your Password and Username and login.

A. When you create a new password, make sure that it's at least 6 characters long. Try to use a complex combination of numbers, letters and punctuation marks.

Q. What are Hubs?
A. Hubs are spaces that are created especially for individual groups or organisations. They are private places where groups or organisations can post Shots and content that is only relevant to them. Think of it as having your own Slenky Home Page that only shows the Shots you are providing and the things that your business is doing.
Q. What are Regions?
A. Regions are like Hubs, but bigger. They are spaces dedicated to cities. They allow cities to display all the Shots that are being posted by organisations and businesses in that area in one place. So it makes it easier for you to search and find out what opportunities there are available in different locations.
Q. What happens after I apply for a Shot?
