Leave a channel

In Slack, teamwork happens in channels — organized spaces for everything related to a project, topic, or team. If a channel is no longer relevant, members can choose to leave it at any time.

Keep in mind

  • No one can leave a workspace's #general channel.
  • Single-Channel Guests can't leave the channel they have access to.
  • Multi-Channel Guests can leave private channels, but they must be removed from public channels by an owner or admin. To rejoin any channel, Multi-Channel Guests must be added back.

Leave channels




  1. From the channel, click the  details icon in the top right.
  2. Click  More.
  3. Select Leave [channel name] from the menu. (If it’s a private channel, click Yes, leave the private channel to confirm.)
  1. From the channel, tap  Details in the top right.
  2. Tap Leave Channel.
  1. From the channel, tap  Details in the top right.
  2. Tap Leave.

Note: If you leave a private channel, its messages and files will no longer appear in your search results. To rejoin, you'll need to be invited back by another member of that channel.
