Frequently asked questions

Apps connect tools and services with Slack, so you can use them without leaving your workspace. Apps make it easy to quickly find, share and act on information across your tech stack by creating one central place to stay focused and get work done. You can learn more in “5 ways to use apps and workflows in Slack.”

Choose from over 2,600 apps in the Slack App Directory to support whatever work you do. If you use custom tools or follow processes specific to your company, you can also explore the Workflow Builder to create your own workflows, or build a custom app using the Slack API.

To install an app, first find it in the Slack App Directory. From an app’s page, click the Add to Slack button. Then follow the prompts to install the app or connect your account. You'll see the option to connect your account after clicking Add to Slack if an app has already been installed in your workspace. You can also find and install apps from your workspace. Click Apps in your left sidebar and explore the directory from there.
For more information on managing apps smartly and securely, check out “An admin’s guide to app management.”

You can add up to 10 apps to workspaces on the free version of Slack. If you’re on one of Slack’s paid plans, you can install as many apps as you’d like—there’s no limit! Keep in mind that some app services require payment or a subscription to use their product before you use it in Slack.

Use the Slack API to build an app that connects the tools and data sources your organization needs to run smoothly.
