Use Slack Connect with free teams

You can use Slack Connect with free teams to make working with people outside your company more seamless. When this setting is enabled, teams on a free plan can join channels they’re invited to in your org without having to upgrade or start a free trial.

  2. Select Settings & administration from the menu, then click Organization settings.
  3. Click  Slack Connect in the left sidebar, then select Settings.
