Delete a channel
on May 15, 2024

Status app is currently in beta stage
The Status app is currently in its beta stage. This means the application is still undergoing active development, and certain features described in this document may function differently or be unavailable within the app.
You can only delete a channel using Status desktop.

Community Owners can delete channels within their communities. As a community Owner, when you delete a channel, all messages and files associated with that channel are also deleted.

Once you delete a channel, it can't be retrieved or restored.

  • You can only delete a channel if you are the community owner.
  • When you delete a channel, it disappears immediately, and all users lose access to its content (messages and files).
  • If you delete a token-gated channel, the permissions you configured for the channel are also lost. To recreate the channel, you need to configure its permissions again.
