Convert a channel to private

If a channel's conversation is better suited for a closed audience, you can convert the channel to private. This type of channel is best for discussions that shouldn't be open to everyone.

Before getting started

  • Only Workspace Owners/Admins and Org Owners/Admins can do this, and they need to be a member of the channel beforehand.
  • Files previously shared in the channel will not become private.
  • The #general channel cannot be converted to a private channel.
  • Shared channels will only be converted in the workspace that makes the change.

Warning: It’s not possible to undo this action. For privacy reasons, private channels can never be made public.

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.
