How to Fix Claude is Disabled

1. Contact Your Workspace Owner or Administrator to Approve Claude on Slack

If your workspace owner or administrator has disabled Claude via the Slack workspace settings, it is best to reach out to them directly and request them to allow permissions again so that Claude can be used in your workspace.

You can do this by contacting your workspace administrator directly and letting them know of the issue.

2. Try Again Later

If the problem still persists after your workspace administrator has allowed permission to use Claude again on your Slack, it might be due to Anthropic’s decision to disable installations until further notice.

If this is the case, the most you can do is wait and try again later when Anthropic allows installations again.

You can also check in on Claude from time to time to see if the problem went away on its own since users often report that the issue resolves itself after a while of being left alone.
