Leaving a Private Chat is simple but before you take that leap, did you know there are ways of reducing background noise and interruptions like changing your notification settings?
Leaving a Private Chat removes your access to its history and the files that were posted in it. Check out the notes at the end of this document (Channels behave differently!).
If you're sure you want to leave a chat, then it really is very easy:
Desktop and Web
Just click the "Leave" link in the bottom of the chat sidebar and you will immediately be removed from it.
If you cannot see the sidebar, it may need sliding out. Just click on the information button in the chat-window to do that.
Click on the three dots in the top-right of the chat pane and choose "Chat info", this takes you to the chat settings.
Then just tap the dots again to leave the chat. Simple!
Click on the information button in the top-right of the chat pane, this takes you to the chat settings.
Just scroll to the bottom of that page and hit the Leave Chat button.
Important things to remember when you leave a Private Chat
- You will no longer have access to the chat history or any documents and files shared in it.
- Remaining members will know you have left the Private Chat
- Your name will disappear from the members list.
The only way to rejoin a Private Chat is to be re-invited by a current member.
In order to permanently leave a channel, you must leave the team entirely which means losing access to all other channels in that team. You will need to be re-invited to the team to regain access.
