Save private notes and files

With Slack, you can keep everything in one place. Not only is it easy to share things, but you can also store them privately, too. Just search or click on your name in your Direct Message list to get started!

Messages and files sent or uploaded to yourself are searchable and visible only to you.

Your personal notepad

Whether you’re saving works in progress, quick notes, or to-do lists, you can simply send them to yourself.


Your personal DMs can be used as a private, searchable, always-accessible notepad.

Tip: Edit your message to strikethrough tasks that you've finished or use an emoji reaction to mark the whole list as complete. ✅ 


File storage

Drafting a post you haven’t quite finished, or a file you’d like to save for later? You can send files to yourself for safekeeping.

Even when they’re not shared with your team members, sending posts, images, or files to yourself means they’ll be easily accessible wherever you go.
