Permissions

Tamara Radijevac

Managing workspace permissions is available on Business and Enterprise plans only.

Adjust workspace-wide settings and preferences in the workspace administration.

Mentions #

Set who can use @channel and @here.

People who can use @channel and @here in all channels, except #general:

  • Everyone (default)
  • Everyone, except guests
  • Owners and Admins only
  • Owners only

Users who do not have permissions to use mentions will not see them in the mentions list after entering the @ symbol or typing @here or @channel. If they type the whole mention, mention will be displayed as plain text.

Show warning when using @channel or @here (in channels with at least 6 members):

  • Always
  • The first time each day
  • Once
  • Never (default)

When a user wants to use a mention in a channel that has more than 6 members, the information modal comes up to ask him if he is sure because he will alert all channel members using one of these mentions.

Separate channel settings override general workspace settings for mention permissions. Therefore, the settings for mentions from the Workspace permissions do not apply to #general.
