Downgrading to the Free subscription

When moving from a paid subscription to the Free subscription, bear the following in mind:

Message/storage limits

Message and storage limits will change. Only the most recent 10,000 messages will be viewable and searchable. And if you’re over the 5 GB file storage limit, you’ll get to choose which files to delete from your workspace.

App/integration limits Your workspace can have up to 10 third-party apps or custom integrations. If you’re over the limit, you’ll be unable to add any other apps or integrations.
Feature availability

Guest accounts will be deactivated, but they can be reactivated as full members. Also, shared channels will no longer be shared, but each workspace will keep a copy. And finally, email apps will be deactivated immediately.

Refunds and credit If applicable, we’ll credit your workspace account with an amount of Slack credit equal to any unused portion of your paid subscription.
