The last icon is the "options" tab. Click on this to access the dropdown of channel options.

Quick summary of each option is listed below.

Sub-Channels (used to be called "Discussions")

If it's a channel you don't really care about, consider muting notifications. If it's a channel you want to be on top of, consider turning on notifications for all messages. You can set specific notification preferences for each channel.
