Leave a channel

In Slack, teamwork happens in channels — organized spaces for everything related to a project, topic, or team. If a channel is no longer relevant, members can choose to leave it at any time.

Keep in mind

Leave channels




  1. Open the channel you'd like to leave.
  2. Click the channel name in the conversation header.
  3. Click the About tab.
  4. Click Leave channel
  1. Open a channel, then tap the channel name.
  2. Tap Leave Channel.
  1. From the channel, tap  Details in the top right.
  2. Tap Leave.

Note: If you leave a private channel, its messages and files will no longer appear in your search results. To rejoin, you'll need to be added back by another member of that channel.
