Archive or hide inactive subchannels

Updated 5 months ago by Antoine Lefeuvre

If you find you’re creating too many subchannels, you can change your view settings to only see the important ones. For more details, read Slack’s guide on organizing your channels.

Organizing Slack channels
Click your team name in the top-left corner → Preferences → Advanced Options
Tip: Press ⌘+K on Mac—Ctrl+K on Windows/Linux to navigate between your channels.

To more directly reduce your number of channels (instead of simply hiding them) you can use the @mailclark archive command to archive all channels which have not been used in the past 7 days.

If you want to customize the number of days, simply type it at the end of the command—e.g. @mailclark archive 30 will archive all channels which have been inactive for the past 30 days.
