A channel that’s shared with a partner looks and feels like a channel 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.

1. Create the channel

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.[image_full src="https://d34u8crftukxnk.cloudfront.net/slackpress/prod/sites/6/02-Share-the-link.gif?w=128&h=96&crop=1" alt="Animated gif showing a cursor mark copy an invitation link in Slack and pasting it in an email" caption="" loc_type="none" locales="" countries="" /]
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.[image_full src="https://d34u8crftukxnk.cloudfront.net/slackpress/prod/sites/6/03-Wait-for-partner-to-accept.gif?w=128&h=96&crop=1" alt="Animated gif showing a cursor mark click on an invitation link in an email, which takes it to Slack to accept the invitation" caption="" loc_type="none" locales="" countries="" /]
