How to Create a Private Slack Channel?

I want to invite new clients to newly created Slack channels as part of the onboarding.

But the channels have to be private of course.

I know I can set this to private, but that's a manual task.

How can I get this automated?

I don't see this in Pabbly when creating a new Slack channel ...

Hey @Edwin

We have added the private option in Slack's "create channel" Action.

Please check this out and let us know if that works for you!!

It works perfectly, thank you!

Last question - I also have another post regarding inviting users to a Slack channel. I got a reply that this is only possible if you have a paid Slack plan.

But now that you have made it possible to create a private channel, can you also make it possible to invite members to this channel? (it's already a Pabbly action)

Or is it only possible when having a paid Slack plan?

Hey @Supreme Verma

Sorry, I don't understand your question - is it related to creating a private channel or to inviting a user?

As I now see, it's only possible to invite internal members via Pabbly: https://jumpshare.com/v/tI6LnCj4eZkbhaPOce9G

I'm not sure if the restriction of not inviting external users can be resolved on Pabbly's end?

If not, then I need to think of a workaround with the available Slack actions in Pabbly to get my external users onboard on autopilot (after the private channel has been created).

Hey @Edwin

Yes, you can only add the internal members here in slack. Also to invite multiple users you need to manually type their Id can be separated by a comma.

Please check out the following screenshot -
