Viewing archived channels

Is there a way to show a list of archived channels in the team version?
If the user (who created the channel) doesn’t record the URL, can they no longer view the archive?

Maybe this helps: https://docs.mattermost.com/administration/config-settings.html#allow-users-to-view-archived-channels-beta.

Allow Users to View Archived Channels (Beta)

True : Allows users to view, share and search for content of channels that have been archived. Users can only view the content in channels of which they were a member before the channel was archived.

False : Users are unable to view, share or search for content of channels that have been archived.

I currently have it set to True. How do I view the archived channels?

I don’t have a server where I can currently test this, but I believe if you click “More…” menu at the bottom of the channel sidebar on the left-hand side, a modal with a list of channels you can join opens and it should include archived channels. Let me know if you’re not seeing this,

Oh, there was a switching pull-down menu in “More…” Thank you!
