Control team creation requests

Give members the ability to add new teams to your organization by request. Once approved by either an Org Owner or Org Admin, the person that requested the new team will automatically become the team's Owner and can invite members to join. 


Here's how: 

  1. Sign in to your Slack Enterprise Grid, then click Manage organization.
  2. Visit the  Settings page of the Admin Dashboard.
  3. Click Organization Info.
  4. Check the box next to Allow members to request new teams to be created. Leave the box unchecked if you don't want to allow members to request new teams on their own.Screen_Shot_2017-03-13_at_8.35.20_AM.png
  5. Choose a channel where you'd like new requests to be sent. The channel type must be private, and shared across your entire organization.
  6. Click Save Changes to finish. 

Tip: Make it easier to manage team creation requests across your organization. Create a private shared channel and invite Org Owners/Admins who can help review the incoming requests.
