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.
  2. Click Workspace settings.
  3. Go to the Permissions tab.
  4. Scroll down to User Groups and click Expand.

  6. Create default user groups for @admins and/or @owners by checking the appropriate box.
  7. Click Save to finish.
