User Permissions

Manage user access, permissions, and privileges within Channels.

Manage your Flock the way you want


Keep Flock under your control. Setting roles for your team members lets everyone know who's who—and what they can do in Flock. Establish permissions based on roles so only certain people can access the information—and the actions—that you want.

Custom Fields

Who's who in Flock? Custom fields help you automatically organize teammates into user groups to add them to Channels and set permissions. Team admins can set up Custom Fields such as department, manager, or role for richer, unique user profiles. The basic user profile contains the user's name, email, and phone number. For your organization, you can set up custom fields like:

  • Function, such as 'Sales, Marketing, Design, or Support'
  • Role, such as 'Individual contributor, Manager, or CXO'
  • Location, such as 'New York HQ, Los Angeles or San Francisco'
