Why use Slack Connect?
Break out of the inbox and change the way you work with other organizations. Companies have found that the speed and efficiency of communicating in channels makes them more impactful 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 the + button next to Channels in your sidebar. Name the channel, and click Create.
2. Send the invite
Follow the prompt to share the channel outside your workspace. Send your partner an email invite right from Slack, or copy the link provided and email the invite directly.
3. Wait for your partner to accept
Pour yourself a cup of tea. Once your partner clicks the link, they’ll be taken back to Slack, where they can accept the invite and set up the channel on their end.
4. Get admin approval
Depending on your settings, the invitation will be sent to an admin on both teams for approval. Admins can manage channels invitations by clicking on their workspace name > Administration > Manage shared channels.
