Why use Slack Connect?
Break out of the inbox and change the way that you work with other organisations. Companies have found that the speed and efficiency of communicating in channels makes them more effective and builds stronger relationships.
For the most part, the channel will look and feel like regular channels in Slack, but have people from different companies inside. Everyone can discuss work, share files and create results in a shared space.

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 admin approval
Depending on your settings, the invitation may be sent to an admin on each team for approval. Admins can manage channels invitations by clicking on their workspace name > Administration > Manage shared channels.
