Let's start with having you register JARVICE Bot to your JARVICE account.

Once you've installed JARVICE Bot, you'll then want to open Slack, and browse down the left-hand side and find the section titled "Recent Apps".


Once you've located this, click on "JARVICE Bot" and on your right-hand side of your Slack window, JARVICE Bot will appear. At this point, you'll want to click on "Register API Key".


Once you've clicked on this, you'll see the dialog below. Now click on "Update Creds".


Next, you want to input your JARVICE account user ID and API key. If for some reason you need a refresher on where to find your API Key, check out Find My API Key. Once both fields are populated, click the "Submit" button.


Upon clicking Submit, you'll be taken back to your JARVICE Bot "Home" screen. From here, you're ready to start using JARVICE Bot. If you have any running jobs or any recent job history from the current month, you'll see them here.


From here, click on the "Job Details" button for a running job.


Once here, try clicking on "Job Output", from here you'll see your job output, this works for all job types, but it's especially awesome on your batch jobs.


Next, click the "Back" button, and then try clicking on "Screenshot". This will give you a point in time view of what's actually on your interactive desktop. This is a great feature if you just want to do a quick visual check to see if your model is meshing correctly.
