Create a channel

Currently, you can only create a channel using Status desktop.

Community owners can create public and private channels in the Status app. All community members can browse and join public channels. To join private channels, members must meet the channel requirements. As a community owner, you can set up specific permissions to create a private channel.

Create a channel

  1. From the navigation sidebar, click the community where you want to create a channel.
  2. In the Community sidebar, right-click the empty space and select Create Channel.
  3. Type your Channel name. Optionally, click Emoji to choose an emoji.
  4. Optionally, choose a Channel colour and add a Description of your channel.
  5. Click Create Channel.

If you need to set up additional permissions, click Add permissions and check out configure channel permissions. For example, you can create a read-only announcement channel or a channel all members can view and post in.
