How to Set Default Channels to a Slack Workspace

Purpose: Default channels in Slack allows workspace administrators to set the channels that should appear for new members joining the workspace. New members will also already be joined into the default channels and can start messaging within them instantly.

Unfortunately, existing members to the workspace will not see new or default set channels automatically appear. They will need to search for and manually join them or be invited. Additionally, private channels cannot be selected as a default channel as they require members to be invited to them by a user already in it.

**Channels #General and #Random will already exist in the workspace and can be renamed as needed. Only the #Random channel can be deleted or set as private.**
