Workflow Builder offers a simple set of tools to automate routine processes into Slack workflows. A workflow is an automated multi-step task or process.
By default, all members of a workspace (but not guests) can create workflows. Any member of a channel can use a published workflow, including guests and members of another organization in a shared channel.
Tip: Slack app developers can now opt in to our workflow steps open beta to create steps builders can use to connect Slack workflows to your service. Review the documentation and get started on Slack API.
How to use workflows
No matter your job or the size of your company, you can streamline your team's work with custom workflows. If you'd like, you can also create workflows from a template or modify one of our pre-built workflow files. Here are a few examples of processes you can automate with Workflow Builder:
We offer a small set of workflow templates you can access from the Slack desktop app or Slack in your browser. To use a template, open Workflow Builder by clicking your workspace name in the top-left corner of Slack on your desktop, then select Templates at the top of the screen. Or, visit Slack Tips to choose from a variety of example workflows you can download and import to Workflow Builder.
Workflow Builder basics
Workflows are comprised of a trigger and a set of steps to complete a task.
Anyone who creates a workflow can add collaborators to help manage it.
When a workflow is added to a channel, any member of the channel can use it. Depending on how a workflow is set up, it can start automatically based on an action a member takes — like joining a channel or using a certain emoji reaction. Other workflows can be launched by clicking the lightning bolt icon next to the message field in a channel.
Manage workflow creation permissions
On the Standard and Plus plans, Workspace Owners and Workspace Admins can choose to restrict workflow creation to administrative roles or certain members of their workspace.
On the Enterprise Grid plan, Org Owners and Org Admins can choose to disable Workflow Builder for their organization altogether. If Workflow Builder is enabled, Org Owners and Admins can set an org policy to determine access, or allow individual Workspace Owners and Admins to manage access at the workspace level.
