A Slack workspace serves as a company’s collaboration hub. It’s common for companies to invite consultants, clients, interns, or temporary employees to a limited set of channels in their workspaces so they can communicate and collaborate together in Slack.
If you’re reading this, it’s likely someone invited you to join a Slack workspace as a guest. This guide will help you understand the guest role, how to use Slack, and what to expect.
Guests in a Slack workspace
There are two types of guest roles available in Slack, each with their own set of permissions: Single-Channel Guests and Multi-Channel Guests.
Single-Channel Guests can join a workspace with an invitation, and can access one specific channel.
Multi-Channel Guests can join a workspace with an invitation, and can access one or more channels.
Guests have different permissions and access than Workspace Members, Admins, and Owners. When you’re ready, visit Roles and permissions in Slack for more.
Follow the steps in this guide to get started in your new workspace. ✨
Step 1: Join a workspace
To join a Slack workspace, accept the email invitation you’ve been sent and create your guest account.
Are you expecting an email invitation, but it hasn’t arrived yet? Check your spam and junk folders, as well as any inbox filters. If you’re still having trouble, ask the sender to confirm they’ve used the correct email address. You can always receive a new invitation if needed.
Step 2: Set up your profile
👤Complete your profile
It’s helpful to complete your profile so others can learn more about who you are. Knowing what you do, where you’re located, and your time zone makes it easier to work together. Be sure to add a profile photo while you’re at it!
🛎Adjust your notifications and preferences
Slack notifications keep you informed about things that need your attention. Notifications for guests work the same as other roles in Slack. To learn more about notifications, and to customize your preferences for desktop, mobile, and channels, read our Guide to Slack notifications.
💡Browse our Help Center for all of the ways you can customize Slack.
Step 3: Download Slack’s desktop and mobile apps
You can sign in and use Slack from a web browser on your desktop at any time (just go to slack.com/signin). But by downloading our desktop and mobile apps, you can stay signed in to multiple workspaces, have more control over notifications, and stay in sync even when you’re on the move.
