Work with Channels

Channels fall just below workspaces in the Slack hierarchy, letting workspace members communicate in a topic-based structure. I would wager that despite a lot of communication in conversations, the vast majority of interaction in Slack happens in channels.

A channel has either a hash or a lock icon to the left of its name wherever it appears in Slack, which respectively indicate whether a channel is public or private.
