It's highly important to structure team communication in your Workspace. Creating a folder helps to subdivide a workspace into smaller groups according to some organizational structure. You can't write or perform any actions in a folder. Once a user joins a folder, this user will see all public channels inside this folder.

To create a new Folder in your Workspace, follow these steps:

Option 1

  1. Click on the channel link Create New Folder under the Workspace name;
  2. Type in a channel name in the pop-up window;
  3. Choose Folder location and select users who will be added as Folder members;
  4. (Optional) Click Options, type in a channel description and (optional) choose the way you want the Folder’s subchannels to be sorted;
  5. Click Create.

A new Folder has been created!
