So you are using Slack for your company. You started with Free Plan and had many channels for your projects and started to reach the limit of 10K messages, here you are some tips to get more out of the free plan:
- Try to avoid hitting enter after each line you write, instead write all lines you want to say in one message (use shift+enter). That way number of messages is minimized.
- Create a team for each project, that way you virtually multiply your 10K messages limit by number of projects you have. Of course you may need one team or more for internal company matters. Don’t worry switching between teams is very easy.
- If you already have channel for each project in one team you can export them and import them to each project team.
