To-do lists in Slack

Need to keep track of your own to-do list or share tasks with your coworkers? With Slack, there are a number of ways to do this from your desktop. 


Save messages and files

Create a to-do list for yourself by saving messages and files that need your attention. In  Later, you can keep track of items that need your attention and set reminders so you don’t forget to follow up. To view your saved items, click  Later at the top of your left sidebar. When you've finished a task, mark it as complete, or move it to the Archived tab to reference later on.  


Use an app

In the Slack App Directory, you'll find an assortment of productivity apps that help with organizing tasks and to-do lists. Learn more about apps and our App Directory, plus how to add apps to your workspace.


Pin messages

Similar to saving messages and files for yourself, you can pin messages in channels for all channel members to see. Review pinned items when you need to, and unpin them when you’re done. Because anyone in the channel can add or remove pins, they’re a great way to collaborate on a to-do list.
