Chat makes it easy to send and read messages, so you can quickly share info with your teammates.
Send a message
Select New chat at the top of the app to start a new conversation.
Type the name or names into the To field at the top of your new chat.
Compose your message in the box at the bottom of the chat. To open your formatting options, select Format beneath the box.
When you're ready, select Send . Everyone who has access to the chat can see your message.
Send more messages
Once the chat has begun (either group or one-on-one), just choose it in the chat list to open it and then send more messages.
Edit or delete a sent message
To delete any message that you have sent to a chat or channel, go to the message and select More options > Delete. The message will disappear, and in its place, you'll see an option to Undo delete.
To edit a message, select More options > Edit . Edit your message as needed and select Send .
Mark a message as unread
If you want to remember to read a message later, you can mark it as unread. Go to the top of the message and select More Options > Mark as unread.
Say more with a reaction
