Tips for Using the Slack App

  • When posting a private message from direct messages, you can only post a message you have sent, not one sent by another user.
  • Types of media that can be displayed from the Slack app include images, videos, text, emojis, and web links (with content previews).
  • Visit our Slack app article for more information about setting up the app.
