Invite your partners to try Slack Connect for free

Available with any paid subscription, Slack Connect is a secure way to work with people from outside your company. Use Slack Connect to invite your partners, customers and vendors to work alongside your team in channels. Partners who are not using a paid Slack subscription, or those not using Slack at all, can be invited to one of your Slack channels. Those who are eligible will receive a 90-day free trial for Slack Connect with Slack’s Pro subscription.

The details

  • Teams using the free version of Slack (who haven't already had a Slack Connect trial) and those using Slack for the first time are eligible. An existing Slack account or workspace is not required and can be created at the time of sign-up. 
  • Eligible teams will have access to Slack’s Pro subscription and all its premium features, including Slack Connect, for 90 days.
  • This trial offer can only be applied once per workspace.


How to share a Slack Connect trial

  1. Invite your partner to a channel in Slack.
  2. Wait for your partner to accept the invitation. When they click the link, they’ll be taken back to Slack to accept the invitation (if brand new to Slack, they’ll create their workspace too).

Note: Invitation links will expire in 14 days.


How to accept a Slack Connect trial 

If a partner has invited you to join one of their Slack channels, use the information below to accept your free Slack Connect trial.

  • If you’re new to Slack, follow the prompts to create your workspace and accept your invitation to the channel.
  • If you’re already using Slack, you can accept the invitation from your partner.
  • You won’t need to add a credit card to accept the trial offer.

You can upgrade your workspace at any time during the trial. If the trial ends and you choose not to upgrade, your workspace will move to the free version of Slack, and any Slack Connect channels will be disconnected.

Note: If you upgrade within five days of the trial ending, Slack Connect channels with one other organisation will be reconnected. Your organisation must be re-invited to channels with multiple organisations.
