I need help with Slack!
Here are some tips for getting the most out of Slack:
The default notification settings for Slack send you everything. You’re going to want to switch to the recommended settings, which are for mentions and direct messages. You can also tweak these settings further, like setting specific “highlight” words and email preferences.
Native Desktop and Mobile Apps
Slack has a great, fully-featured web app, native Mac and Windows apps, and iOS and Android apps. Preferences, conversations, and what you’ve read are synced across devices. Push notifications on the go are pretty cool, too.
Hiding Join Messages
If the join/leave messages feel somewhat noisy, you may find the following user style helpful; it will hide them for you.
Slack has many useful keyboard shortcuts. Access a list by typing
Cmd-?. For example,
Shift-Opt-↑ (up or down arrow) to switch to the next unread channel.
Cmd-T is a “quick switcher” that allows you to jump to any channel quickly. More keyboard shortcuts.
Much like IRC you can use Slack commands in the format
/command where you start with a forward slash and then type the given command to perform an action. For example,
/away to toggle status, /me to describe something you’re doing, or
/prefs to open Preferences menu. More commands.
