What is Slack Connect? How do I use Slack Connect?


Slack Connect allows you to collaborate with other workspaces outside of U-M Slack using shared channels and direct messages (DMs).

Caution: If you accept a Slack Connect invitation from an external organization, you cannot share any sensitive data allowed in U-M Slack in that channel. Because the invite did not originate from U-M Slack and the channel is owned by an external organization, our data protections do not apply.
