What is a Slack Channel Link?

A Slack channel is a dedicated space for conversations organized around projects, topics, or teams within the Slack workspace. 

A Slack channel link, on the other hand, is a URL that provides direct navigation to a specific Slack channel, offering a convenient way to access these spaces.

Keep in mind that a Slack channel link differs from channel IDs. The channel ID is a unique identifier embedded in the channel URL that points to a specific Slack channel, while the link is a navigable URL offering direct access to the channel.

How to Create a Link for a Slack Channel

1. Start by hovering over the channel name. Then, right-click (or control-click on Mac) directly on the channel's name.
