  1. How to create a message from scratch and prepare to send it out

As part of our Chat (Beta) feature, you have the ability to create messages for sending out on Slack. To do this, you will need to build a message by setting the chat type, channel, sender and of course the message content.

The instructions on how to do this are below!

You can make your message stand out by using emojis and text formatting!

Emojis

To add an emoji to your message, simply add the code for the specific character you'd like to add, with a colon (:) on either side.

You can find the codes for all emojis on this page. Here are a few examples:

Text formatting

You can also use basic formatting within slack messages by using the following codes:

  • Bold - Place an Asterisk (*) before and after the word you'd like to be bolded. For example, *Hello* would be displayed as Hello
  • Italics - Place an underscore (_) before and after the word you'd like to be italicized. For example, _Hello_ would be displayed as Hello
