How to increase channel name length restriction?

Hi,

Is there a way to increase the name limitation? When I try to create a channel called “Application Lifecycle Management” it stops after the second space (which is 22 chars, 20 in the URL).

Hi @jdshkolnik,

Beyond 22 characters, the name of the channel won’t fit in the left-hand sidebar, so there’s not an option to do this.

You can set the Channel Purpose field for a longer description displayed to users when deciding whether they want to join a channel.
