Anytime your name is mentioned in a channel you've joined, Slack can notify you. You can also use highlight words and phrases so that you're notified of important discussions. Never miss a "production error" or "coffee time" again!
For easy scanning, your highlight words and phrases will be highlighted in yellow.
Keep in mind: Highlight words sent by bots and integration messages do not trigger notifications, but they will appear highlighted in Slack.
Add highlight words and phrases
Click your team name to open the Team Menu.
Click the Notifications tab.
Enter words and phrases to highlight in the Highlight Words text box.
Swipe left to open the right sidebar.
Tap Push Notifications.
Tap Highlight Words to add or edit words or phrases that will trigger notifications.
Tap the overflow menu in the top right.
Tap Push notifications.
Add your desired highlight words under Add or edit highlight words.
You're unable to add or edit highlight words from a Windows Phone at the moment, but stay tuned for updates!
Note: Highlight words and phrases are not case-sensitive, so coffee, Coffee, and COFFEE will all create the same notification.
