Request to export all conversations

With Slack data exports, owners and admins can export data from their workspace or Enterprise Grid organization. In addition to exporting data from public channels (available to Workspace Owners and Admins on any plan), Workspace and Org Owners on Slack’s Business+ and Enterprise Grid plans have a few additional options:

  • Business+ plan
    Workspace Owners can apply to access a self-service tool that allows them to export data from all channels and conversations in their workspace as needed and permitted by law. This type of export includes content from public channels, private channels, and direct messages (DMs).
  • Enterprise Grid plan
    Org Owners can request to access a self-service tool that allows them to export data from all channels and conversations in their Enterprise Grid org as needed and permitted by law. This type of export includes content from public channels, private channels, and DMs.

    Org Owners can also request to export data for a single user in their org, which includes all messages and files sent by that user in any conversation they’ve been a part of, as needed and permitted by law.
