They handed him the keys to the Slack kingdom of his company and told him to make it productive. Log in as administrator only to find out who was the one who originally set it up, and you and your co-workers had no favor in naming the channels in a way that is not conducive to efficient use. What do you do? Certainly, you could create new channels and delete old ones, or you could simply change the name of the ones you have. It's that last option I want to focus on. Why? Because it is the most efficient use of your time.

I will demonstrate how to rename a Slack channel in both the mobile application and the desktop client.

What you will need

All you will need is the administrator credentials for your Slack account: you cannot change the name of the channels unless you are the administrator user.

Before you start

Before you start changing the name of a single channel, you'll want to make sure nobody is using Slack. Who knows what kind of insanity could occur if you rename a channel while it is in use? Then, do this after hours or send a memo to everyone to inform them when the change will occur and what the new names of the channels will be.

How to change the name of a Slack channel in the mobile application

The first route we will take is to change the name of a channel through the mobile application. The process is not difficult, it simply is not exactly obvious. These are the steps to change the channel (I will demonstrate it with the Android platform).

  1. Open the Slack application.
  2. Open the workspace that contains the channel.
  3. Open the channel in question.
  4. Touch the downward pointing arrow associated with the name of the channel ( Figure A ).
  5. In the resulting window ( Figure B ), tap Edit.
  6. In the Name section ( Figure C ), change the name of your channel.
  7. Touch Save when finished.

We will now set our sights on the desktop application, this is how:

  1. Open the Slack desktop client.
  2. Open the workspace that contains the channel.
  3. Open the channel in question.
  4. Click on the settings icon ( Figure D ).
  5. Click on Additional Options.

  6. Enter the new name and click Rename Channel ( Figure E ).

And that's it to rename a Slack channel. Be sure to give names to those channels that can help make your company's time in Slack clear and efficient Use names that indicate the purpose of the channel and you will find much less confusion.
