Manage permissions for user groups

User groups are a great way to communicate with multiple members at once. When you mention a user group — @designers, for example — every member in the group will be notified. You can also @mention a user group in a new channel to quickly invite all of the group’s members at once.

As a Workspace Owner or Admin, you can allow other members to create, disable, or modify user groups, as well as create your own @admin and @owner groups.

 

Set user group permissions for your workspace

Permissions for user groups can be set from your desktop: 

  1. Click your workspace name in the top left to open the menu.
    workspace_menu
  2. Click Workspace settings.
  3. Go to the Permissions tab.
  4. Scroll down to User Groups and click Expand.
    user_group_permissions
  5. Choose who can create and disable user groups, and who can edit them.
  6. Create default user groups for @admins and/or @owners by checking the appropriate box.
  7. Click Save to finish.

 

Who can use this feature?
  • By default, only Workspace Owners and Admins can create and manage user groups, but they can make this feature available to all members.
