Managing users within a team

Users can be added to a team as either an owner or a member. This can be changed at any time, promoting or demoting owners as needed.

Owners of teams have elevated privileges, including the following:

  • Creating and deleting a team
  • Modifying the team name and description
  • Creating and deleting private channels
  • Adding members to the team or private channels

Team owners can also modify the settings of the team to change member experiences. For example, a team owner can choose to disable the following abilities for members:

  • Adding and deleting channels
  • Modifying channel names and descriptions
  • Adding private channels
  • Adding applications

Members can add other members to public teams themselves and can request members be added to private teams and private channels. Members can also elect to leave a team themselves at any time.

If moderation is turned on for a team, its channels can have separate moderators...
