Hi

We have a Team with 100 people in it, we want to be able create a number of Channels underneath this that aren't hidden as such but are optional for people to join. So the main Team would a have 100 people in it but only 10 members of that team are in that Channel.

 

Is this possible or do we have to setup Private Channels? If so can a Private Channel be visable?

Or can a channel be created and by default users have to subscribe to get alerts?

 

Thanks

By default each member of a Team is also a member of all its channels, if you want to have separate membership currently Private channels are the only option.

Notifications can be handled on per-channel basis by users though, so you should explore that option.
