A Slack workspace is a single place for your team and your work. Looking for more information about creating or managing your new Slack workspace? This guide is for you, and we’re glad that you’re here!
First, head to the Get started page and enter your email address. We’ll walk you through the process, but you can visit Create a Slack workspace if you’d like step-by-step instructions to follow along with. Once you’ve created your workspace, you’ll be the primary owner.
Tip: If you’d like to work with people from other companies in your Slack workspace, add them to a channel with Slack Connect.
3. Invite people to your workspace
Now that you’ve completed the basics to set up your workspace, it’s time to bring your workspace to life by inviting members to join. There are a few ways to invite new members to your workspace:
Send an email invitation Enter an email address, along with the full name of the person that you’d like to invite. Once they accept their invitation, you'll see them in your workspace.
Share an invitation link Create an invitation link that anyone can use to join your workspace. Each link can be used by up to 400 people.
Allow email sign-up By enabling email sign-up, anyone with an email address on an approved domain (like your company's website) will be able to create an account and join your workspace automatically.
4. Add apps to your workspace
Slack lets you connect all of the tools that you use for work in one place, eliminating the need to constantly switch between services. You can find apps for services that you already use in the Slack App Directory – everything from payments and accounting software to project management tools and calendars – and add them to your workspace for all of your members to use.
5. Get your members up to speed
Once your workspace is set up, you can share the following resources to help everyone get familiar with Slack:
