How to open specific channel in Slack app using Stream Deck

what i learned

you can open a specific channel/DM conversation on the slack app using the open website action on stream deck but pointing ot to slack://channel?team=<Workspace ID>&id=<Channel / teammate ID>.

finding the workspace's ID wasn't super straigh-forward but if you right click your own profile picture on slack and copy it's link you'll find 3 IDs. the first one is the workspace's ID. the second one is yours, if you use those two IDs you could open a direct message on slack directly from stream deck.

once you have your workspace's ID all you need to do is copy link to the channels you're interested in having quick access to. these links do not include the workspace ID which is why you need to get it via a profile pic link.
