Exporting a Slack Workspace

Workspace Owners and Admins can export data from their workspace:
1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
2. Select Administration, then Workspace settings from the menu.
3. Choose Import/Export Data in the top right.
4. Select the Export tab.
5. Click Start Export. Slack will send you an email once it's ready.
6. Open the email and click Visit your workspace's export page.
7. Click Ready for download to access the .zip file.

The .zip file will contain your message history (in JSON format) and file links from all public channels.

This is the file you should upload to Logikcull.


ℹ️ For manual uploads, it's important to keep the slack upload you receive prior to uploading, intact, do not modify the contents of original zip, ideally do not even unzip prior to uploading. Modified slack zips will not upload correctly.

  • Slack Messages in Logikcull will get assigned the 'From Slack' QC Tag:  

Things to Note

  • Each day of messages = 1 document. All documents are rendered to HTML and then to PDF for easy review, redacting, and downloading.

  • Edited and Deleted messages are captured and easily discovered. Search for "DELETED MESSAGE" or "EDITED MESSAGE" to find all messages that were edited/deleted.

  • All channel names are preserved and added to the file path (e.g. Slack.com\Workspace\SuperSecretChatRoom).

  • The folder structure must have the reference files on the root level or one level in. To clarify, for the following example, you can either select all > compress, or you can encase these files in a folder and compress that folder:
