Note: The following setting is only accessible to the Workspace Owner. Regular workspace admins won't be able to access these settings.

Settings & administration

  1. In your Slack app, select your workspace name in the top left corner. Under Settings & administration, select Workspace settings from the drop-down list.

  2. Go to the Permissions tab at the top.

  3. Scroll down to Channel Management and choose Expand.

  4. For People who can create public channels, change the setting to Everyone, except guests.

  5. Save your settings.

App Management Settings

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.

  2. Select Settings & administration from the menu, then click Manage apps to open the Slack App Directory.

  3. Click App Management Settings in the left column.

  4. Turn OFF both Require App Approval and Only allow apps from the Slack App Directory.

  5. If your organization wants to leave Require App Approval ON, select Workspace Owners and selected members or groups and choose your Slack account or your workspace's service account as an additional manager.

  • Tip: To reduce email notifications being sent to the admin's inbox, we recommend creating a designated Slack service account.
