You're on a mission: you love the clarity that Slite has brought to your work, and you want your team to adopt it. Here are some tips to help, as you're sending out those invites:
1️⃣ Start with one team
Invite key people from your team to start testing Slite, together. Having several teammates with you will give you a better idea of the potential (and it's always easier to convince people to get on board as a group.)
💡Pro tip: make sure you include a decision-maker in the bunch, if you're not one yourself.
2️⃣ Pinpoint the problem Slite solves for your team
Go back to why you started testing (or researching) Slite in the first place. Does Slite:
- Replace previous tools?
- Encourage more knowledge sharing?
- Structure your team's work?
- Make it easier to collaborate?
- All of the above?
If you keep the why in mind, it's easier to arrive at the how Slite can help. 🙏
3️⃣ Import content into Slite
To get a better sense of how Slite could enter your workflow, you can import some of your existing content from markdown, html, doc/docx, Confluence, Evernote and Google Drive in a few clicks.

4️⃣ Explore use cases
You can discover new use cases by checking out ready-to-use channel templates; cloning templates into your team's workspace can speed up your team's adoption of Slite.
💡Pro tip: creating an employee onboarding channel is one of the best ways to start structuring important company knowledge in Slite. Everything you'd want to teach someone new is what you want to record in your team's knowledge platform. 🙌
5️⃣ Structure your Slite
Create your first channels and docs, to ensure your team members don't find an empty Slite. (Bonus, it will help everyone develop good organizational habits right away.)
💡Pro tip: structure your team's channels around departments, projects, or both. For more efficient organization, you can separate channels for flow (meeting notes, collaborative docs...) and stock (company knowledge, processes, documentation...).
6️⃣ Use the Slack integration
Encourage your team to share Slite docs via Slack. This will:
- Introduce them to Slite
- Demonstrate how Slite can be used with existing team tools
💡 Pro tip: next time your team member asks for information in Slack that you already have in Slite, use the Slack integration to search and share the right doc, directly.
7️⃣ Invite your entire team!
Time to get your company together, building and sharing knowledge 🎉
💡Pro tip: enable auto-join in your team settings to allow anyone under your domain to automatically join your team.
