Create a link to a member’s profile

Guide people straight to a teammate’s profile by creating a custom link to share in your company’s people directory or intranet. This link (also known as a deep link) will only open Slack for members with access to your workspace.

Linking to a profile makes finding the right people in Slack even easier. Try sharing the link in places where it’s helpful to put a face to a name:

  • Internal employee directory
  • Email signatures
  • Newsletter updates

Create the link by combining your workspace URL with members’ user IDs. Here’s how:

  1. The first part of the link is the workspace URL, e.g.  https://a1marketing.slack.com.
  2. The second part of the link is the user ID. Multiple members’ user IDs can be found using the users.list API method or an individual’s user ID can be found by clicking the  More actions icon in a member’s profile, then choosing Copy member ID.
  3. Append the user ID to the end of the workspace URL. Here’s an example: https://a1marketing.slack.com/team/U1H63D8SZ.

    That’s it! Include this link to a member’s profile anywhere you like.

Create the link by combining your org URL with members’ org-level user IDs. Here’s how:

  1. The first part of the link is the org URL. Let’s say it’s https://a1marketingorg.enterprise.slack.com.
  2. The second part of the link is the member's org-level User ID. Multiple members' User IDs can be found using the SCIM GET /Users API method. Or, an individual's User ID can be found by clicking the  More actions icon in a member's profile, then choosing Copy member ID.
  3. Append the user ID to the end of the org URL like so: https://a1marketingorg.enterprise.slack.com/user/@W1H63D8SZ.

    That’s it! Include this link to a member’s profile anywhere you like.
