Hi Balaji,

Can you indicate the steps you are following to create the room? On Mac, you can:

  • Click Room menu and select Create Room
  • Click Team name in top left and then in the screen with all the rooms, you should see Create Room in the top right.

Are you sure your admin hasn't disabled this feature for users? See specifically:

By default, people with the user role can do the following:

  • Chat in open chat rooms (and be invited to chat in private rooms)
  • Read and send messages
  • Download files  
  • Search the history of all open rooms and any private rooms they are members of
  • Create an API v2 personal token

As long as the administrator hasn't disabled these features, they can also do the following:

  • Participate in private 1-1 chats 
  • Invite other users to join 
  • Create chat rooms
  • Update their own user profile 
  • Delete their own messages 
  • Chat over video
