Slack is the communication platform many companies prefer to use, but the search function is pretty difficult to sort through when you have many channels. Luckily, you can use the History feature on Slack to quickly find your most recent conversations on your desktop or web client.
Conversations in Slack are mostly had either in channels that most people can see or in direct messages (DMs) that only people involved in the conversation can see. Traditionally, Slack has these conversations listed on the left, with a search bar at the top of the screen that you can use to search in specific channels or for messages from specific users.
Good thing Slack has a History feature that you can use to quickly access a listing of your conversations in the most recent order. This feature can be used for channels and DMs as well.
If you want to check your most recent conversations in Slack, simply click the History button (the button that looks like a clock). You can find it in the top toolbar, on the left side of the search bar.
Once you click the button, a menu will appear on the screen, listing your most recent conversations in order. You can simply click on any of these channels or DMs to jump back into the discussion.
There are always more ways you can use to customize your Slack experience and keep yourself working efficiently and avoid getting distracted in the constant hubbub that is a busy workplace.
