Slack Connect: Disconnect from an organisation

You can disconnect from an organisation to end all communication with them in Slack Connect channels and direct messages (DMs). 

Note: Instead of disconnecting, you can stop sharing specific channels with other organisations, if you like.

What to expect

Depending on the permissions in your Slack Connect channels, here’s what to expect when you disconnect from an organisation:

  • Invited organisations with permission to post, invite and more will retain an archived copy of the channel, but those with only permission to post will not.
  • The disconnected channel will remain usable by the channel owner.
  • DMs will be archived for all participants, with all message history intact.
  • Member profile details such as profile photos and display names will continue to update in disconnected conversations. 
  • Files shared in channels and DMs by people from other organisations will no longer be accessible.
