Muting a channel allows you to occasionally browse its activity without being notified of unread messages.

A muted channel will never appear as unread (bold) in the channel list. You will no longer receive notifications for any activity in the channel, including @mentions. When you are mentioned in a muted channel, you will see a mention count indicator next to its name in the channel list.

  4. In the Notification Preferences menu, check the Mute this channel box.
  5. Click Done.

To unmute, revisit the Notification Preferences menu and uncheck the Mute box.
