Email template for introducing Slack

Slack works best when your whole team is on board, so you don’t have to split conversations between email and other messaging apps. We’ve put together a customizable email template that you can send to your team to help get them up and running.



  1. Copy the template below and paste it into a new email message. 
  2. Customize the [placeholder text].
  3. Add additional context to help your team understand how and why you're adopting Slack.
  4. Remove content that isn't relevant for your team. 
  5. Send the email to your team and ask them to reply with any questions or comments in Slack!

Email template

Hi team,

As some of you know, we’re moving to Slack for our internal team communications. Slack is a messaging app where we can talk, share files, and work together. It also connects with tools we already use, like [add your examples here], plus 900+ other apps.


Why are we moving to Slack?

We want to use the best communication tools to make our lives easier and be more productive. Having everything in one place will help us work together better and faster, rather than jumping around between emails, IMs, texts and a bunch of other programs. Everything you share in Slack is automatically indexed and archived, creating a searchable archive of all our work.


Here’s what Slack can help us with:

  • Communicating transparently across the company 
  • Providing greater visibility into what other teams are working on
  • Quicker feedback and better decision making
  • Easy access to information, documents, and files
  • Bringing all our tools into one place and shuffling less between different windows and systems


Before we get started, please get yourself set up:

Step 1: Visit [Slack URL] and sign up with your work email. Download the Slack apps for desktop and mobile. 
Step 2: Check out Slack’s Getting Started guides.


Questions or feedback?

If you have questions about our Slack workspace, please post in the [#slack-help or another appropriate channel] channel on Slack or send an email to [your email address here]. If you have general questions about Slack, their Help Center is a great resource.
