Slack is experiencing some connectivity issues — please stand by. Check Status
To begin, click Start Export. Your export will begin processing, and you'll receive an email once it's ready.
When the email arrives, click Visit your workspace's export page.
Click Ready for download to begin downloading a .zip file.
The .zip file will contain your message history (in JSON format) and links to uploaded files.
Caution: Deleting a workspace before importing the .zip file you exported into another workspace (or third-party service) will destroy all links to uploaded files. Finish importing the .zip file, then the unneeded workspace can be safely deleted.
If you delete the old workspace before importing the .zip file to a new Slack workspace, your links to uploaded files will be lost.
Exports include all messages and files from public channels — you can't be selective. However, if you intend to import the data into another Slack workspace, you can select messages and files to import during the import process. See Importing message history for details.
You can delete an export file at any time by clicking the button next to the download link.
