This article will cover how to connect an existing space to a Slack channel. The Slack channel cannot be used by another Space. If you want to change the Slack channel connected with a space, or disconnect a space from Slack, refer to this article.  

If you'd like to know how to create a space and have it linked to a Slack channel from creation, see this article.


Please note that a Slack channel can only be associated with one Workast space.


To link your space to a Slack channel:

  • Click on the (+) sign on the top right-hand corner of the Space to add an app.  If you have apps in the space already, click on the ellipses (three dots) and select "Manage apps."
  • Find the Slack app, and click on 'Add' and close the window.
  • At the top right-hand corner, there will be a Slack icon.
  • Click on the Slack icon and then 'Settings.'
  • There will be an option to 'Select a Slack channel' and this will connect a Slack channel with the Space.
  • Select a channel and click on 'Save.'
  • Only channels that are not connected to another Workast space will connect successfully.
