What is a channel

Channels allow you to discuss various topics with your colleagues in a convenient and organized way.
 

All team members are automatically added to any channel created, ensuring everyone can contribute to the conversation. Additionally, even new members who join the team later can catch up on past messages, which is very helpful.
 


⭐️ Pro tip! If you want to have discussions with a specific group of people, both inside and outside of your organization, you should consider opening a Group instead of a hannel. Find out more about Channels vs. Groups.


 

Channels are muted by default to avoid unnecessary notifications, but you can choose to receive alerts if you want to stay updated on new messages.
 

When you first log in to your teamspace, you’ll see a “#general” channel that’s already set up. It’s an excellent place to start discussions and get to know your colleagues.
