How to connect an existing space to a Slack channel

This article will cover how to connect an existing space that is not connected to Slack to a Slack channel.  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 apps icon (square grid) in the top right-hand corner of your space.
  • Select "Manage apps." A new apps page will open.
  • Under "Add new Apps" select Slack.  A confirmation will appear that Slack has been added.
  • Next, press the X in the top right-hand corner of the screen to leave that page and return to your space.
  • Click on the apps icon (square grid) a second time, and select "Slack" and then "Settings."  You will then get a list of public Slack channels that can be connected to your space.  (Only public channels are available at this time.)  Select a channel to connect it to your space.  Only channels that are not connected to another Workast space will connect successfully.
  • Click Save to confirm the channel connection.
