Frequently asked questions

Unfortunately, no. Slack is built for teams, so it’s only effective if your whole team are on board. To upgrade Slack, you’ll need to upgrade your entire workspace at once.

Not at all! Slack grows with your organisation, so you’ll never have to worry about limits on the number of people in your channels or team.

Yep, we keep all your information safe, sound and searchable! You’ll have access to every message or file from the very beginning of your Slack.

We have more information about each subscription on our pricing page. You can also contact us and we’ll be happy to walk you through each subscription to work out the right one for you.
