Slack group FAQ

My subscriber email address and main Slack email address are different. Can you send the invite to my Slack email address?

  • Slack requires separate logins for every team so there are no joint accounts. To make sure we keep Slack subscriber-only, we need to use your subscription email. Slack's desktop and mobile apps make it very easy to switch between teams.
