Invitations for Slack lets you use convenient shortcodes to show “Join us on Slack.” buttons or Slack badges. Just add
your Slack token and use the shortcodes wherever you want your visitors to be able to invite themselves from.


  • Easy to use:
    • Visit to generate your Slack token.
    • Add the token to the plugin settings.
    • Use the [invitations_for_slack] or [invitations_for_slack_badge] shortcodes.
  • Invitations are performed using the WP REST API which in turn communicates with the Slack API. No page reloads.


  • A Slack team and the team’s access token.
  • A self-hosted WordPress website (Not a website.)
