Strengthen connections with strategic partners
Accelerate your business by staying close to partners, to take advantage of new joint opportunities as they arise. When you connect with partners in a Slack channel, it’s easy for both sides to stay on top of updates and new developments.
Business development teams use Slack Connect to:
- Keep a pulse on late-breaking updates so that you can pivot as needed
- Keep subject-matter experts from both sides, such as marketing or legal, in the loop to help to finalise a partnership agreement
- Create personal and persistent connections to partners
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.

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.
