Didn't receive a weekly update email

Weekly team update emails are sent only if your team has four or more active users and has sent 100+ messages in the last week. These emails are sent only to Team Owners and Administrators.

Note: Email notifications won’t go out if Slack is active on on your desktop or mobile.
