How To Join A Slack Workspace

Whether you’re a new hire at a company that uses Slack, or you’ve been invited to join a friend’s workspace, joining a Slack workspace is an easy process. In this post, we’ll provide a step-by-step guide on how you can do this.

What is a Slack Workspace?

Before we delve into the steps, let’s first understand what a Slack workspace is. A Slack workspace is a shared hub where team members or a group of people can communicate and work together. In other words, it is a single place for messaging, tools and files, and is the foundation for collaboration in Slack.

Joining a Slack Workspace

There are two main ways to join a Slack workspace: receiving an invitation from an existing member, or creating a new account on the workspace’s URL.

1. Join via Invitation

The simplest way to join a Slack workspace is through an invitation from an existing member or the workspace’s admin. Here’s how:

  1. Open the invitation email or message.
  2. Click on the ‘Join Now’ button. This will redirect you to a page where you will be prompted to create a new account.
  3. Create your account by entering your full name, your preferred username, and password.
  4. Click on ‘Create Account’.
  5. You will be redirected to the workspace. That’s it! You are now a member of the workspace.

2. Join via Workspace URL

If you know the workspace’s URL, you can join without an invitation. Here’s the step-by-step guide:

  1. Open your preferred web browser.
  2. Type the URL of the workspace. It usually follows this format: ‘’.
  3. On the workspace’s landing page, click on the ‘create an account’ link.
  4. You will be prompted to enter your email address. After entering, click ‘Next’.
  5. Slack will send you a confirmation code. Check your email for the code, then enter it on the next page and click ‘Verify’.
  6. Enter your full name, your preferred username, and password.
  7. Click on ‘Next’. Congratulations, you are now in the workspace!

Joining a Slack workspace is simple and straightforward. Whether you’re joining via an invitation or through the workspace’s URL, becoming a part of a workspace will open doors for collaboration, improved communication, and productivity.
