Request a new workspace in Enterprise Grid

If you can’t find the right workspace to join in your organisation, maybe it’s time to create a new one! Start by sending a request to your org admins. 🌱


Submit a request

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
  2. Click Find more workspaces from the menu.
  3. Search for a workspace that you might want to join. If you can’t find one, scroll to the bottom and click create a new workspace to submit a request.
  4. Add a Workspace Name and include a message for your Org Admins.
  5. Click Send Request. Slack will notify you when it has been reviewed.

Note: Some orgs have removed the option to request workspaces. That means you will have to get in touch with an org owner or admin for help creating a workspace.


The review process

As soon as your request is reviewed, we'll let you know if it was approved. If you're a member of another workspace in the org, Slackbot will notify you. If you haven't joined any workspaces yet, keep an eye out for an email.

What’s next? If approved, you’re the owner of the workspace. Go on, invite new members to join you!

Note: if your request was not approved, you may need to provide more information in the message to administrators field. We recommend getting in touch with an Org Owner or Admin for help.

Who can use this feature?
  • All members of an org can access this feature by default
