First, head to the Get Started page and enter your email address. We’ll walk you through the process, but you can visit Create a Slack workspace if you’d like step-by-step instructions to follow along with.
Tip: Once you’ve created your workspace, you’ll be the Primary Owner. As the Primary Owner, there are a few things only you can manage for your workspace.
2. Organize channels
Channels are where a majority of conversations in your Slack workspace take place. To keep your channels organized, we recommend creating a channel naming strategy and setting default channels all new members will be added to when they join your workspace.
Tip: If you’d like to work with people from other companies in your Slack workspace, add them to a channel with Slack Connect.
3. Invite people to your workspace
Now that you’ve completed the basics to set up your workspace, it’s time to bring your workspace to life by inviting members to join. There are a few ways to invite new members to your workspace:
Send an email invitation Enter an email address, along with the full name of the person you’d like to invite. Once they accept their invitation, you'll see them in your workspace.
Share an invitation link Create an invitation link that anyone can use to join your workspace. Each link can be used by up to 2,000 people.
Allow email signup By enabling email signup, anyone with an email address on an approved domain (like your company's website) will be able to create an account and join your workspace automatically.
Tip: Once someone has been invited to your workspace, you can add them to channels before they’ve even accepted their invitation.
4. Add apps to your workspace
Slack lets you connect all of the tools you use for work in one place, eliminating the need to constantly switch between services. You can find apps for services you already use in the Slack App Directory — everything from payments and accounting software to project management tools and calendars — and add them to your workspace for all of your members to use.
5. Get your members up to speed
Once your workspace is set up, you can share the following resources to help everyone get familiar with Slack:
