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 set up channel permissions using Status desktop.

Community Owners can set up permissions using three different variables:

Who holds
Is allowed to
. Check out the table below for reference.

  • Using channel permissions, community Owners can restrict channel access and actions to specific people based on token requirements.
  • Only the community owner and admins can set up channel permissions.
  • Use community permissions to make the entire community private. You can combine community-level and channel-level permission in the same community.
  • When you delete a token-gated channel, the channel permissions are lost. If you recreate the channel, you need to set up its permission again.
