Slack launches Shared Channels

Slack is adding a new feature where different organisations can create a common space for communication and collaboration.

Integrated cooperation

Shared Channels will operate like any other channel with the added ability to add entire groups rather than just inviting individuals.

Part of the initiative of Shared Channels is to curtail managing ballooning guest accounts, and minimising extraneous emailing. 

Platform apps such as Dropbox Paper or Zoom will still work seamlessly in Shared Channels without breaking work flow, and can be found in a new header within the sidebar with a double diamond symbol.

Differentiate between members

Shared Channel members from another team will have their company logo displayed overtop their profile pic. Clicking on their profile will reveal team, email, time zone and their shared channels.

The new feature is currently only available in beta to Slack teams on Standard and Plus plans. Shared Channels will be accessed by clicking the Team Menu and selecting Shared Channels..

Have you been using Slack lately? Are you among the few to be beta testing between teams? Let us know in our comments below.
