Star channels and direct messages

To help you keep track of important conversations, you can star a channel or direct message (DM). When you do this, the conversation will be moved to the Starred section in your sidebar.

Note: If you previously starred messages or files, you can find them by clicking Saved items in your sidebar. Learn more about saving messages and files.

What to expect

  • The Starred section appears in your sidebar after the first time you star a channel or DM.
  • If you delete the Starred section and then star a channel or DM, this section will reappear in your sidebar.
  • After you star a conversation, the  star icon will turn blue. To remove the conversation from your Starred section, click the  star icon beside the channel or member name(s).
