How to archive/unarchive a channel?

If a channel is not needed for the time being it can be archived and later on unarchived when needed.

Archive: To archive a channel go to Channel Preview, i.e. under Actions select Channel info. In here click on the last icon in bottom right corner and select Archive.

  • You will get a prompt asking if you want to go ahead with archiving the channel, select the Yes option to archive the channel.
  • Archiving a channel will block it from further use. Once archived no actions can be performed on it like clearing chats, leaving from the channel, pinning the channel, etc...
  • The channel will no longer be listed in left sidebar and is not searchable, but the conversation will not be deleted.

Archive the Channel by selecting Archive from the options in the bottom right corner of Channel Preview

Unarchive: To unarchive a channel, click on the +Create/join next to channels in left sidebar, type the channel name in search bar and select the channel. In the screen that follows click on Unarchive.

  • You will get a prompt asking if you want to go ahead with unarchiving the channel, select the Yes option to unarchive the channel.
  • The channel will be listed under Archived Channels when searched by channel participants.
