Want to keep track of your own private to-do list or share tasks with your teammates? Using Slack on your desktop, there are number of ways to create and manage to-do lists: pin messages, use stars, create a dedicated channel, or integrate a third-party app. Read on to learn more about to-do list options. ✅
Star messages to create to-do items
Create a to-do list by starring messages and files that need your attention: this is a great option for tracking tasks and items that you need to follow up on individually. To view your starred items, click the star icon at the top-right corner — there’s your to-do list! Just remove a star when the item’s done. 🔨
Create a #to-do channel
Creating a dedicated #to-do list channel is a great way to track and assign group tasks in one convenient place.
Be sure to invite anyone to the channel who needs to add items, make requests or work on the list. Too noisy? You can always create more to-do channels for individual teams or projects if you need to.
Tip: Use emoji reactions to show your teammates you’re working on a request. Try adding eyes emoji 👀 to say “I’m looking at this!” or a check mark emoji ✅ for “all done”.
Pin messages and files as to-do items in a channel, review pinned items when you need to, and unpin them when you’re done. Anyone in a channel can add or remove pins, so they’re a great way to collaborate on a to-do list!
Create a post with a checklist
If you need a more traditional to-do list with items you can check off, you can create a post with checklist formatting. If you're working with a team, share the post in a relevant channel so others can edit the list or see the progress made. If the checklist is for yourself, you can keep your post private.
Use a task management app
You can find some great task management apps in Slack’s App Directory. Adding an app to Slack will make those tasks searchable within your workspace. Search our App Directory for terms like tasks and todo to get started.
