Browse people and user groups in Slack

In Slack, you can find people you work with from the directory. Search for anyone to view their profile and find information, like their job title, local time zone, and more.

What to expect

  • You can filter results by account type, like guest or deactivated account, to find who you're looking for more quickly.
  • If you use Slack Connect to work with people outside your company, you can view people you work with from other organizations.
  • On paid plans, you can also browse user groups in your workspace.

Find owners and admins

Some actions in Slack are only available to owners and admins. If you don’t have permission to use a feature or change a setting, find an owner or admin to ask for help:

  4. Click a photo to open someone’s profile.
  5. If you’d like, click  Message to send that person a DM or  Call to start a call.


Browse user groups
