Set channel notification preferences

You can set channel-specific notification preferences, in addition to desktop and mobile. After all, some channels are certainly more important than others!

For every channel, you can choose the type of activity Slack notifies you about: 

  • All new messages
  • Mentions of your name and any of your keywords
  • Nothing at all. (You'll see a badge in the channel list if you get a direct message or a teammate mentions you or your keywords.)
