Shared channels will only be converted in the workspace that makes the change.
Convert a channel to private
Warning: It’s not possible to undo this action. For privacy reasons, private channels can never be made public.
From your desktop, open the channel you'd like to make private. (Make sure you're a member of the channel!)
Click the gear icon in the top right.
Select Additional options from the Channel Settings menu.
Choose Change to a private channel.
Click Change to Private to confirm. A message will post in channel to let members know it’s been converted.
It’s not possible to convert a channel to private using the mobile app.
Restrict who can convert channels
By default, Owners and Admins of a workspace or org can convert channels to private (members don't have the option). If they’d prefer, Workspace and Org Owners can limit channel management preferences – including private channel conversions – to only Owners.
Who can use this feature?
Workspace Owners/Admins and Org Owners/Admins
Free, Standard, Plus, and Enterprise Grid plans
