Why use shared channels?
Break out of the inbox and change the way you work with other organisations. Companies have found that the speed and efficiency of communicating in shared channels makes them more impactful and builds stronger relationships.
Shared channels look and feel like normal channels, but have people from two different companies inside. Everyone can discuss work, share files and create results in a shared space.
Thousands of companies already connect and collaborate in shared channels
We hear back from our customers that we’re like an extension of their team, and part of that feeling definitely comes from the fact that we use Slack.
How to create a shared channel
Create the channel
Click the + button next to Channels in your sidebar. Name the channel, click Create and follow the prompt to share the channel outside of your workspace.
2. Share the link
From there, copy the link provided and send it to your external partner.
3. Wait for your partner to accept
Stick the kettle on. Once your partner clicks the link, they’ll be taken back to Slack where they can accept the invitation and set up the shared channel.
4. Get admin approval
Depending on your settings, the invitation will be sent to an admin on both teams for approval. Admins can manage shared channel invitations by clicking on their workspace name > Administration > Manage shared channels.
