I'm the Slack admin. I want to replace a home-grown Slack integration with Zapier. But to know which Zapier tier to buy, I need to know historically how many messages were posted to a given Slack channel per month.

I've looked all through Slack's Statistics page, admin interface and client UI and cannot find this specific metric.

Is it gettable?

See the article, Review team activity and statistics for instructions to do this. Note that the article states:

Who can use this feature?

  • By default, all members except for Guests can view team activity.

  • Available to teams on the Standard and Plus plans, but a limited report is available on the Free plan.

  • 1
    As I wrote, I read through their Statistics page and it does not contain the information I need. It does not show messages broken down per channel. Jan 25, 2017 at 18:15
  • The Limited report is that a free Slack Team will on'y show the breakdown of public / private / PM.

    We're not on a free plan. We're on the Standard plan. Jan 25, 2017 at 20:18
