Get Shift Done: Tips and Tricks
If you’ve ever missed an important message in Slack because you don’t have the time to read every line of text in each conversation, there’s a simple hack that can help keep you informed without wasting your time wading through rivers of text: the keyword highlighting tool.
For example, say you wanted to stay up-to-date on new changes in the Walter account. You can set up the highlighting feature to alert you whenever “Walter” is mentioned in a conversation. Not only will you get a notification, but the word will also be highlighted in the conversation so the relevant information is easy to find.
Here’s how to set it up:
- Click on your face in the upper left side of the screen.
- Choose Preferences > Notifications > Highlight Words.
