Get more out of Slack with Orbit

Orbit’s Slack integration creates a profile for every participant in your community Slack and an activity for each message, allowing you to see when they joined, the channels they are more active on, and the messages they posted.

About Slack

Slack is an instant messaging service for online communities. Users communicate with video calls, text messaging, media and files in persistent chat rooms organized by topic, private groups, and direct messaging.

Please Note: Slack recently announced changes to Free and Pro plans which go into effect on September 1, 2022. This update only impacts the historical import for users who connect a new Slack community to Orbit after September 1, 2022. Those communities will only be able to import 90 days of previous activity if they are on the Free plan. There will be no impact to existing workspaces.

Data Tracked:


  • When a user joins a Slack channel
  • New messages in a channel
  • New replies in a thread

Historical Import

  • All of the above listed activities for 365 days retrospectively from the date of connecting the integration to Orbit
  • Up to 100,000 messages (very active Slack communities may see less than 12 months of data due to this)

Does not track or import

  • Emoji reactions to messages
