Set who can notify a channel or workspace

By default, all members have the ability to use special @mentions to notify a channel or workspace, but Workspace Owners can restrict this.

Available permissions

  • Workspace Owners can decide who can use @channel or @here.
  • Workspace Owners can choose who can post in the #general channel and use @everyone.
  • Workspace Owners and Admins can choose to display warning messages when @channel or @everyone is used in a channel with at least 6 members.
