Posts are a way to create, edit and share fully formatted documents in Slack. Once you’ve created a post, use the text formatting described below to organise your thoughts easily and clearly.
Posts can only be created and edited from Slack on your desktop, but you can view them from our mobile apps.
Psst! Want to format your messages in Slack channels and DMs? Read Format your messages to learn how.
When you’re writing or editing a post, the paragraph menu is located to the left of the line you’re working on.
Click the ¶ icon for styling options, then pick from the following:
the icons for headings and subheadings
the icon for numbered lists
the icon for bullet-point lists
the icon for checklists
the icon for code blocks
Tip: Checklists are a great way to create and share to-do lists. Click the ¶ icon next to your first item, then select the checklist icon. Press Enter to add more items or a tick box to mark an item as done.
Selecting a range of text in your post displays a style menu.
Here, you can choose from bold, italic, underline, strikethrough and code snippet styles. You can also create linked text.
Posts support keyboard shortcuts for quick and easy formatting. We’ve included familiar standard keyboard shortcuts for ease – like using ⌘B (Mac) or CtrlB (Windows) to make text you’ve selected bold.
For a list of keyboard shortcuts, press ⌘/ (Mac) or Ctrl/ (Windows) or just click the More menu icon in the top right and select Keyboard shortcuts. Here you can see a list of Markdown-style formatting shortcuts if you prefer too.
Hint: A few formatting options are only available via keyboard shortcuts, so it’s worth taking a look over them!
Add images to your post
It’s not possible to attach or upload an image to a post. But if you want to include an image, just paste a link to it in an empty paragraph. If it’s a public or shared file, the image will expand automatically.
Just like links in your Slack messages, you can expand links in your posts to show a preview of the content. It’s as simple as clicking the link you want to expand, then clicking the eye icon.
Note: Some websites don’t offer content previews; in these cases, clicking the eye icon will not expand the link.
