How To Switch Between Workspaces On Slack
Last Updated: September 28, 2021
Are you working with multiple workspaces on Slack? Are you thinking of switching between workspaces from time to time? Thankfully, Slack allows you to do so. You can sign in to multiple workspaces on their web, desktop, and mobile app and switch between them any time you want. Follow our quick guide below to learn how.
Slack allows its users to work with multiple workspaces on their app. Although you need separate accounts for each one, you can use a single email address for all of them.
Unlike other apps, there’s no need for you to sign out of your current workspace on Slack to use another one. You can add them to your list of workspaces whether you’re using the web, mobile, or desktop app.
With that in mind, Slack allows its users to switch between workspaces with a few clicks. Here’s our guide to help you access your other workspaces on the app.
How to open another workspace on Slack
When you have multiple workspaces connected to your email address, you can switch to them any time you want. As such, you can work on different projects without logging out of your current workspace on the app.
You can switch between workspaces whether you’re using the Slack desktop, web, or mobile app. In our quick tutorials below, we’ll show you how to do it from all three versions.
On the desktop app:
When you previously signed in to multiple workspaces on the desktop app, you can see the icons for each of them on the left side of the app. Clicking one of the icons opens the workspace immediately.
To sign in to a new workspace, click the plus icon below the other workspace icons and select “Sign in to another workspace.” This option opens Slack on your browser, where you need to enter your work email to another account.
On the web app:
- After signing in to one of your workspaces in Slack, click its name on the top left side of the screen.
- On the menu that appears, hover to Switch workspaces and select the one you want to use.
If you can’t find the workspace among the available ones, hover instead to “Add workspaces” and sign in to a new one. You can also find the workspace you need with your work email.
On the mobile app:
- Open the Slack app and sign in to your account.
- Tap the name of the workspace at the top of the screen.
- Select the workspace you want to use from the menu.
If you don’t see the workspace on the menu, tap “Add workspace” at the bottom of the screen. If the workspace is on the same email address, you can add it immediately. Otherwise, you’ll need to sign in to another one on the app.
Switch between workspaces whenever you want
Now that you know how to open another workspace on your Slack app, you can switch between the accounts you have any time you want. In this way, you can work with different people and check your progress with them without signing out and logging in to another workspace.
