Suggested apps in the sidebar

Apps connect services and tools you use to Slack. When you install an app to Slack, you can access information and services without leaving your workspace.

To help teams work better in Slack, we suggest relevant apps in the sidebar using your email address (for example, by doing an MX record lookup). 

Note: If your workspace has app installation restrictions in place, you will not see prompts to install specific apps from the sidebar.

When you install an app to Slack, it becomes available for any member of your workspace to use.

If an app has already been installed to your workspace, you can connect your account to begin using the app.

  2. Select Connect [app name].
