Keyword notifications

Anytime your @username is mentioned by another member, Slack will send you a notification. You can also set up notifications for specific keywords so that you’re alerted to conversations or topics that are important to you.

For easy scanning, your keywords will be highlighted in yellow.

Keep in mind: Any keywords that are included in messages from bots or integrations won't trigger notifications, but they'll appear highlighted in Slack.
