Add messages to lists

When you come across a message in Slack that you want to keep track of, add it to a list. Lists are designed to help organise work happening in Slack, and you can use them to keep track of tasks related to projects that you’re working on, personal to-dos and more.

Go for it!

  1. Hover over any message in a channel or direct message (DM) and click the   Lists icon. 
  2. Click Create New List, or select a list you've already made. 
  3. Now that your list has a new item, you can add more info from the detail view if you'd like. To open your list in a separate window, click on the list title below the item that you just added. 
  4.  And that's it! You can add messages from channels or DMs to your list at any time, and view all of your lists from the   Lists tab in your sidebar.
