Hide/show channels

By default, all channels and teams are visible, allowing you to receive notifications for teams and channels that you haven’t hidden from your list. You can choose Show or Hide to ensure you get notifications from teams and channels you care about.

To bring the channel back:

  1. Hover over Hidden channel and click on the arrow > to the right of your channel. 
  2. Click on Show next to the team/channel you want to bring back. [see screenshot]
