Inactive team URLs

For people that want to use Slack right away, we provide URLs on a first-come, first-served basis. That said, URLs can expire after long periods of inactivity to help free them up for new teams.

If you create a team and stop using Slack, the URL may be changed at our discretion. But not to worry — if that's the case, we'll notify you first so you have the opportunity to keep the URL. We believe that's fair. 

If your Slack team becomes inactive, here's what to expect: 

  1. Team Admins and Owners will receive an email letting them know the inactive Slack URL is expiring soon. 
  2. To keep the URL, tap Keep URL in the email before the expiry date. If you don't want to keep it, you don't need to do anything — just disregard the email. 
  3. That's it — you're all set! 

If you decide not to keep the URL, we'll send you an email with a new one. You can use the new URL to access your team's messages and files, just in case.  

Note: If your URL was changed by Slack after it expired, a Team Owner can change the URL if you'd like to use something else.
