Manage workspace discovery and access

The idea that people in your company can effortlessly discover and join workspaces connected to your Enterprise organization is a powerful one.

Sound interesting? Make it possible by choosing a Workspace Access preference. 

Find the right level of discovery

Workspace Owners can choose between three levels:

  • Discoverable and open to join
    Open workspaces are visible and can be joined by any member of your organization. 
  • Discoverable, but new members must ask for permission to join
    Requests to join will be sent to a channel of your choice, and all members in that channel can grant approval.
  • Unlisted
    Unlisted workspaces are hidden from members of your organization. New members must be invited by a Workspace Owner or Workspace Admin. 

Set your discoverability preference

From a workspace:
  1. Click your workspace name in the top left to open the menu.
  2. Hover over Administration, then click Settings
  3. Click to expand Workspace Access.
  4. Choose how people can find and join the workspace. 
  5. Click Save.

Tip: Make it easier for people in your organization to find the right workspace by adding a helpful description. From Settings, click Change Workspace Info.

Note: Members can visit Discover and join workspaces on your organization for more on accessing workspaces on Slack Enterprise Grid.

Approve a request to join

If members of your organization need to ask for approval prior to joining a workspace, their request is sent to the channel you specified along with your Workspace Access preference. manage_team_discovery_-_access_requests.png
