Slack Connect: Manage channel invitation settings and permissions

Slack Connect enables members of your organisation to work with partners, vendors and other third parties in the same channel. Keep reading to learn more about the types of invitations that your organisation can send and the permissions that they grant to external people working in your channels.


Invitation types and permissions

You can decide what type of invitation your members can send when they’d like to collaborate with external people in your organisation’s channels. There are two invitation types that you can manage: Permission only to post and Permission to post, invite and more. The invitation types determine what permissions external people will have in the channels that they’re invited to.
