Stay in sync with operations partners
Managing supply chains and logistics requires skilled coordination. By sharing a channel with your partners, you can work closely to run day-to-day operations, relay important updates and handle the unexpected.
Operations and logistics teams use Slack Connect to:
- Share real-time updates with partners about key changes to your supply chain
- Triage issues quickly by keeping the right people in the loop from both sides
- React and adapt to changing environments to meet customer demand
A channel that’s shared with a partner looks and feels like a channel that you use with your internal team. People from up to 20 different companies can join, so everyone can stay aligned and drive results in one shared space.
Our restaurant partners and our shared service providers can all be in the same Slack channel. Then, if there’s an incident, we can immediately communicate with them as if they were physically in the same office as us.
Thousands of companies already use Slack Connect to work better together
How to get started with Slack Connect
1. Create the channel
Click on the + button next to Channels in your sidebar. Name the channel and click on Create.
2. Send the invitation
Follow the prompt to share the channel outside your workspace. Send your partner an email invitation right from Slack, or copy the link provided and email the invitation directly.
3. Wait for your partner to accept
Stick the kettle on. When your partner clicks on the link, they’ll be taken back to Slack, where they can accept the invitation and set up the channel on their end.
4. Get your admin’s approval
Depending on your settings, the invitation may be sent to an admin on each team for approval. Admins can manage channel invitations by clicking on their workspace name > Administration > Manage shared channels.
