Introduce people across the companies that you work with

Slack Connect allows you to work with people outside your company in channels and direct messages (DMs). When you’d like to connect your coworker with a colleague at another company, or introduce your contacts from different organisations that you work with in Slack, you can securely share certain contact information from their profile. Then they can easily get in touch and start working together – right in Slack.

What to expect

  • You can share someone’s contact info if you’re from the same company or if you work together in a Slack Connect channel or DM.
  • The shared contact information includes their full name, display name, profile picture, email address (depending on their workplace settings) and company name – some of the basic elements that you can see in their Slack profile.
  • Your contacts will see that you've shared their info when the recipient sends them an invitation to connect.
  • You won’t be able to share someone’s contact info if they’ve adjusted their contact sharing preferences.
  • To share someone's contact info, you must be using a paid Slack subscription, but the person that you're sharing contact info with can be using any subscription.


Share someone’s contact info

  1. Find the person whose contact info you'd like to share.
  2. Click their name to view their profile.
  3. Click More, then select Share contact from the menu.
  4. Search for the channel or person that you'd like to share contact info with, then click Share.

Note: The person whose contact information you've shared can ignore or block any invitations from people that they don't want to connect with.

Working with contact info

Here are the options that people will see when they hover over the contact info that you've shared:

  •  Send a message
    Click Message to start a DM conversation.
  •  Share contact info
    Share this person’s contact info if someone else would benefit from reaching out to them.
  •  Save contact info
    Easily find this person’s contact info by pressing CmdK (Mac) or CtrlK (Windows/Linux) and typing their name into the search field.

Note: Depending on each organisation's Slack settings, people who are introduced may not be able to message each other in Slack.
