What are Channel Permissions and how to view them?

Channel Permissions are a set of parameters that control what actions a member can perform in a channel. These permissions have the same action name across different channel levels, but they can be customized for each channel.

Note : Channel Permissions are available in Unlimited plan of Cliq and in Zoho One.

The actions in channel permissions are as follows:
  1. Edit Channel Info: To edit channel name, image and description.
  2. Add participants: To add participants in the channel.
  3. Remove participants: To remove participants from the channel.
  4. Clear all messages: To clear the entire conversation history of the channel.
  5. Archive channel: To archive the channel.
  6. Delete channel: To delete the channel.
  7. Send messages: To send messages in channel.
  8. Reply in thread: To reply to a message in the form of threads.
  9. Mention users: To use @mentions for users, @mentions for teams (org groups) and #tags for channel.
  10. Leave channel: To leave the channel when needed.
  11. Host Broadcast: To broadcast session in the channel.
  12. Delete Messages posted by others: To restrict who can delete messages sent by others.
  13. Delete Message: To delete messages in the channel.
  14. Edit Message: To edit messages in the channel.
  15. Start/Schedule Meeting: To start or schedule a meeting on the channel
  16. Pin Messages: To pin messages in the channel.
  17. @all, @available mentions: To mention all users through @all (all participants of the channel) and @available (only participants whose status is available)
To view the channel permissions, you can do either of the following:
  1. Click the Channel image and select Permissions from the dialog window that appears.
  2. Click Actions in the bottom right of the channel and click Channel info. Select Permissions from the dialog window that appears.

 


Tip : You can create an announcement channel where only admins can share information by disabling the 'Send Messages' actions for all participants. A notification will be displayed on the channel informing participants that they can't post messages.
