I cannot begin to calculate how much of my life I’ve spent on Slack.
Every (non camp counselor) job I’ve worked has used the messaging platform. In media and tech, it’s ubiquitous. And yet, despite being extremely familiar with Slack and its various functionalities, I haven’t used an incredibly useful tool until this week.
If you, like me, live at least eight hours per day on Slack, then you need to know this little trick. It’s called the history tool. Effectively, it lets you jump around to your most recent conversations and channels. It makes navigating work so much easier, because you aren’t scrolling around like mad through dozens of channels.
