In this article, you can learn how to change Channel posting permission levels and discovery options.


Channel permission settings

Channels have two main permission settings: discovery and posting & commenting permissions.


By default, the discovery is restricted. To edit the discovery options for a Channel, you can navigate to the Channel's settings and scroll down to the Discover section.


For other Channels (e.g. Secondary news Channels), however, the discovery options include:

  • Restricted (default): Not visible in discovery, joining by sharing
  • Ask to join: Visible in discovery, anyone can ask to join from the discovery view
  • Anyone can join: Visible in discovery, anyone can join automatically

Posting and commenting permissions

You can set the posting and commenting permissions by navigating to a Channel's settings and scrolling down to the Restrictions section. By editing these permissions, you can control who can create posts and comments in a Channel's discussion.

Below, you can find the posting and commenting permission options:

  • Anyone can post and comment (default)
  • Anyone can comment, but posting is restricted to Channel owners and editors
  • Only the Channel owner and editors can comment and post
