Slack: Find a List of User Groups in a Workspace


U-M Slack


What are Slack user groups? How do I find a list of Slack user groups in my U-M Slack workspace?



  • In U-M Slack, Workspace Admins have the ability to create user groups. User groups are a group of members in a workspace who often need to be notified at once. When you mention a user group (e.g., @slack-team), every member in the group will be notified. You can also mention a user group in a new channel to quickly invite all of the group’s members.
  • User groups are unique to each workspace in U-M Slack. You cannot access all user groups across all workspaces of which you are a member in U-M Slack from one location. You will need to navigate to each workspace to view their specific user groups.
  • Only Workspace Admins can create, modify, and deactivate user groups. If you want to create, modify, or deactivate a user group, please reach out to an admin of your workspace.

Find a list of user groups

  1. Select More (...) from the far left sidebar panel in Slack.
  2. Hover over Your organization and select People.
  3. Click User groups on the left side.
  4. Click the Workspaces drop-down under the search field and select the relevant workspace.

You can now scroll through and/or search for the user groups for that workspace.
