Stack Overflow for Teams is now free forever for up to 50 users

Stack Overflow for Teams, our collaboration platform for building a knowledge base inside your organization, is now free.

I’m excited to announce the launch of our Free plan on Stack Overflow for Teams starting today.

What you need to know

  • Our private knowledge sharing and collaboration platform, Stack Overflow for Teams, is now free for up to 50 users. 
  • No credit card is required to start your Team, and it’s free forever.
  • Our Free plan includes ChatOps integrations to Slack and Microsoft Teams.
  • We have invested in a guided onboarding process to help admins and users experience value quickly and efficiently.
  • Our Basic customers now get access to single sign-on (SSO) for an easy and secure login experience.

If you aren’t familiar with Stack Overflow for Teams, it combines the best features of the public Stack Overflow platform with features tailored for companies who need a private knowledge sharing and async collaboration platform. Check out our Product Tour page to learn more about these features. 

With Stack Overflow for Teams being a flexible platform, we’ve seen customers use it for everything from helping onboard new employees, driving innersource initiatives, enabling cloud or platform migration efforts, a self-serve help center to reduce tickets, and so much more. Since launching Teams in 2018, we have added thousands of customers ranging in size and use cases including Microsoft, Expensify, Box, Instacart, and Unqork.  Developers and technologists love our Teams platform because they spend less time answering the same questions over and over again and can unblock their colleagues while reducing their own disruptions. 

The open source ethos that is foundational to this network was an inspiration for our new free offering. We’re excited to enable those who are working towards a common goal to develop a collective knowledge base. I truly believe those in our technology community will find value from our free, private environment. Whether it’s in a startup, a side project, user group, open source project or hackathon, these communities can now ask questions that might be off-topic to our public site, but are essential to their knowledge base.

We know that sharing knowledge and collaboration is critical to companies and teams of all sizes. We also know people need a large enough group and time to see the impact and value of a knowledge sharing and collaboration platform like Stack Overflow for Teams. Our previous 30 day free trial of our Basic tier wasn’t long enough. Now, anyone can experience Stack Overflow for Teams free with a significantly sized group for as long as they need.

With the roll out of our new Free plan, we’ve enriched our Basic plan to now include a single sign-on (SSO) without changing the current price.  SSO allows users seamless and secure access to our critical platform anywhere, anytime across all of our paid products.
