Sometimes sharing detailed information with your team takes more than a message. Posts are a way to share and collaborate on long-form content – such as project plans and documentation – directly in Slack.
Tip: You can create posts – and snippets– in the language of your choice. Make them beautiful with help from our Formatting for posts article.
Create and share a post
You can create a post from Slack on your desktop. Here’s how:
Next to the message box, click the button, then select Post.
Enter a title and begin composing your post. Your work will be saved as a draft automatically.
To share your post, click the Share button in the top right and select a channel or person to share it with.
When you create a post, you decide when you’re ready to share it with others in Slack. Before you share a post in a channel or direct message, the post can be found in Your files. Click the More items icon in the top right corner, then select Your files.
Note: You’re unable to create or edit posts on our mobile apps.
Collaborate on a post
From their desktop app, people in your workspace can work together on any post. Here’s how:
Once you’re ready to share your post, click the Share button in the top right.
Choose a channel or person to share it with.
Tick the box next to Let others edit this post.
If you haven’t ticked the box to allow others to edit your post, you can always change this later:
Open your post by clicking the Edit in new window icon.
Click the More actions icon.
Tick the box next to Let others edit this post.
If you prefer not to allow others to edit your post, message threads are also a great way to collaborate or get feedback from teammates. Comments appear in a thread where the post was shared, so you and your teammates can keep everything in context.
How shared editing works
When shared editing is turned on, members can take turns editing a post. Just click Edit to begin making changes and click Finished editing once you’ve finished. The post will then be available for another member to edit.
When you view a post that someone else is editing, you’ll see that the Edit button is greyed out with a message telling you which member is making edits.
Tip: If you want to restrict who can edit your post, share it in a private channel or direct message. Note that others will still be able to share your post more widely if they choose.
Turn off shared editing
You can turn off shared editing at any time. In the post, simply click the More actions button, then untick Let others edit this post.
Create a public link to your post
You can share a post with anyone – even people outside of your Slack workspace – by creating a public link. Here’s how:
Open the post you want to share.
Click the More actions menu icon to open the actions drop-down.
Select Create public link.
Copy the link to your clipboard, then click Done.
This public link, when shared, will load for anyone on the internet.
You can revoke the public link at any time. Just follow the steps above and select View public link, then Revoke. Once a link is revoked, the post will no longer be viewable outside your Slack workspace.
Bear in mind: If you share a post in a workspace-wide channel like #general, anyone who can see the post is also able to create a public link to it. To prevent this, you can share it in a private channel or direct message instead.
Workspace owners and admins can turn off the ability for members to create public links on the Settings page.
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
