Roles and permissions on an organization

On Slack Enterprise Grid, all members have a role at the organization level.

At the team level, you can refine a member’s role even further to make sure everyone has the appropriate level of permission and access to data on the organization.


Roles overview

  • Organization level
    Org Owner, Org Admin, Org Member, Multi-Channel Guest, and Single-Channel Guest
  • Team level
    Members of an organization can be promoted to individual Team Owners and Admins 

Tip: Connect IDP groups to individual teams to make managing your organization’s membership a breeze. 🌴

Note: For more on roles and permissions at the team-level, visit Roles and permissions in Slack on the Help Center.
