  2. Click "Get Started" then “Sign In” in the upper right corner.

  3. If you’re not already signed into Slack, you'll be taken to a sign-in page on — sign in with your Slack username and password. If you’re already signed in to Slack, you’ll skip this step.

  4. You'll see a Slack authorization page confirming that Donut wants to "confirm your identity" on Slack. Hit "Continue."

  5. Now you're in! 🎉

What if I have multiple Slack accounts for multiple Slack workspaces?

You'll only be able to sign into Donut with an account for a Slack workspace that uses Donut. If you’re a member of multiple Slack workspaces, you may accidentally sign into Donut with the wrong account. Here’s what to do if you think this has happened:

  1. Go to If you’re already signed into Donut, click on your name in the upper right corner and click “sign out.”

  2. Once you’re on the Donut home page, click “Sign In” in the upper right.

  3. If you're not already signed into Slack, you'll be prompted to sign in to your Slack workspace. Make sure to sign into the workspace that uses Donut! If you're already signed into a Slack workspace, you'll go straight to #4.

  4. You'll see a Slack authorization page confirming that Donut wants to "confirm your Identity" on Slack. Use the dropdown menu in the upper right to choose the workspace that uses Donut.
