Understand channel canvas update messages

To help you stay on top of changes made to channel canvases, we'll send a message to the conversation when someone makes an edit.

 

Channel canvas update messages

When we'll send a message

We’ll send a message to the conversation when the edits include the following:

  • A new heading or new paragraph is added.
  • An item is added to a numbered or bulleted list.
  • A checklist item is marked as complete.

Note: Once you’ve stopped making edits to the canvas, we’ll wait five minutes before sending a message to the conversation.

 

When we won't send a message

To reduce clutter, we'll combine the following edits into the most recently sent message instead of sending a new one:

  • Additional edits made within four hours of your last edit.
  • An edit made by someone else within four hours of your last edit. 
  • Edits made when no other messages have been sent in the conversation since the canvas was last edited.
