Join a Slack workspace

A Slack workspace is a space you share with other members to communicate and get work done. To join a workspace, you’ll need to create an account.

Depending on your work or interests, you can join multiple workspaces. You’ll create a separate account for each one, but you can use the same email address for all of them if you want.

Different ways to join a workspace:

  • Receive and accept an email invitation from someone who is a member of the workspace.
  • Join a workspace using your work email address.
  • Let Slack find workspaces associated with your email address(es).
