Manage permissions for user groups

User groups are a great way to communicate with multiple members at once. When you mention a user group, e.g. @designers, every member in the group will be notified. You can also @mention a user group in a new channel to quickly invite all of the group’s members at once.

As a workspace owner or admin, you can allow other members to create, disable or modify user groups, as well as create your own @admin and @owner groups.


Set user group permissions for your workspace

Permissions for user groups can be set from your desktop:

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.
  2. Select Administration, then Workspace settings from the menu.
  3. Go to the Permissions tab.
  4. Scroll down to User groups and click Expand.
  5. Choose who can create and disable user groups and who can edit them.
  6. Create default user groups for @admins and/or @owners by ticking the appropriate box. (If your workspace is part of an Enterprise Grid org, you won’t see this option. These user groups must be made at the org level.)
  7. Click Save to finish.


Who can use this feature?
  • By default, only Workspace Owners and Admins can create and manage user groups, but they can make this feature available to all members.
  • Standard, Plus and Enterprise Grid subscriptions
