Data Retention in Slack

Electronic discovery in the online collaboration platform Slack was previously discussed in the

Tip of the Night for Jily 18, 2019. Keep in mind that Slack’s messages will be retained indefinitely under the default settings. Specific retention settings can be set for individual channels and users of those channels may or may not be given notice of the expiration deadline for the messages.

For channels shared with outside parties, the retention settings will only apply for messages from internal users.
