With message activity, owners, admins and members with permission can see how many people have interacted with a given message in Slack. You can use message activity to measure the impact of announcements and internal communications campaigns for your organisation.
What to expect
You can view message activity for messages that have been sent in the last 12 months in public channels with at least 50 members.
By default, owners and admins can view message activity for their workspace or Enterprise Grid org. If they like, they can
disable message activity for their organisation or give certain members permission to use the feature.
Note: Message activity is not available for messages in private channels or in Slack Connect channels.
View message activity
You can view message data from the channel where the message was posted:
Hover over a message and click the
three dots icon. Select
