Team navigator

Slack feature request - Team navigator.

Allow you to navigate the teams and people at your company in some structured way. I want this all the time.

Would also be helpful for future channel visibility etc..

Agreed, I've thought about this as well, and it really seems like a thing that would be best if built directly into Slack.

Names & Faces and Pingboard are both org chart apps that have Slack integrations. Our current team is quite small, but I think I'll check out Names & Faces as we grow.

List of all notifications received

I have only one feature request for @SlackHQ

Show me a list of all the notifications I received, so when I read them on my commute and don't answer I can go back to it when I get on my laptop.

/remind does the job when I remember to use it๐Ÿ˜†

Compact mode for mobile

@SlackHQ Dear Slack friends, is it possible to use the compact layout theme in the Android app? I can't find the option and the documentation is inconclusive.

Add custom notification sounds

@SlackHQ I really wish there were an option for users to provide their own audio files, like "person-saying-the-name-of-this-slack-org.wav"

Channel history to see what you looked at last

@SlackHQ feature request: channel browsing history, or channel activity history in sequence. You saw something important but had to click on something more important but forgot the channel, or maybe even the workspace.

Nested lists

Hey @SlackHQ I'm loving the new text formatting bar that's rolling out but when are you guys gonna enable nested lists? The people want organized outlines in Slack!

Order channels by last channel activity

@SlackHQ Asking for a friend:

Is there a way for Slack to order channels by last channel activity? @microsoft #teams has this. Wondering if Slack has a setting somewhere?

Schedule Slack messages for later

With a global team, sometimes you think of something to tell someone elseโ€”but you don't want to disturb them if they're in a different timezone and sleeping, and yet know that you'll forget to send the message later if you don't write it now.

It'd be awesome if Slack had a way to let you enter messages as normal but set them to only actually send to the person mentioned at 8AM their time (or whatever time you set). That'd also be handy for scheduled announcements and such, as Buffer offers for social media or Mailchimp and other email newsletters offer for email announcements...

How do you manage your chat inbox?

Hey guys, first post here. As part of my work, I have to deal with and respond to a lot of incoming messages from different chats: Linkedin/WhatsApp/Signal/IG. I try to use Unreads/Archive features...

What are your favorite small, single-purpose apps?

There are plenty of advanced, powerful software filled with enough features to do almost anything. And then there are the tiny utilities that don't do much, but that are great at what they do do. ...
