Search channel

You can search channels according to exact matches (equals).

Modify channel group

You can modify the channel group settings for open types.

caution
  • For users affected by the changed settings, those who are already connected will have the changes applied when they reconnect to the server.
  • For instance, if the FALLBACK channel is changed from channel A to channel B, users that joined channel A based on the previous FALLBACK logic will remain there and enter channel B when they reconnect to the server.

Delete channel group

When a channel group is deleted, all the channels associated with it will also be deleted. Users will no longer be able to chat in those channels.
