Control workspace creation requests on Enterprise Grid

Control workspace creation at your organisation by requiring members to request new ones. Once approved by either an org owner or org admin, the person that requested the new workspace will automatically become the workspace owner and can invite members to join. 


Here’s how: 

  1. Sign in to your Slack Enterprise Grid, then click Manage organisation.
  2. Visit the  Settings page of the Admin dashboard.
  3. Click Organisation info.
  4. Tick the box next to Allow members to request new workspaces to be created. Leave the box unticked if you don’t want to allow members to request new workspaces on their own.
  5. Choose a channel where you want new requests to be sent. The channel type must be private and shared across your entire organisation.
  6. Click Save changes to finish. 

Tip: make it easier to manage workspace creation requests across your organisation. Create a private multi-workspace channel and invite Org Owners and Org Admins who can help review the incoming requests.
