If you’re using Slack in your organization or team and want to create a group chat, take a look at how easy it is to create a group chat in no time.
Slack is one of the most popular instant messaging clients available, and it’s growing fast. It allows people to communicate with their colleagues and co-workers to collaborate on projects. People working in different groups can talk to each other through direct messages, but the leader or anyone from the group can create a group chat, so everyone on the team is on the same page regarding projects.
If you’re using Slack in your organization and want to create a group chat, follow some simple steps below, and you’ll be ready in no time.
Create a Group Chat in Slack
Log in to your Slack account, and you’ll see a list of groups and people you can send messages to in the left sidebar. Once you’re logged in, click on the small “+” right next to direct messages, and it will pop up a new dialog box.
In the dialog box, you’ll see a group of people from your organization using Slack. Just select the people you want to create a group chat with, either by choosing from the list or typing them manually and click “Go.”
There you go, guys; it’s as simple as that. You can now talk to the people in the new Group Chat. You can also add more people to the group chat if you want to. Click on the “Channel Details” icon on the top of the group chat, as shown below.
Now, a sidebar will pop up on the right side, click on the “Members” drop-down menu and select “Add someone.” From there, choose the person you want to add to the conversation.
This feature is quite useful when working with specific individuals on projects or for having an online meeting.
After an outpouring of consternation regarding the team sidebar, we’ve listened, thought hard, and removed it. Those signed into a single team will find the sidebar hidden once again. It’s as if we never changed it! Or rather, it’s as if we changed it, and then changed it back. In fact, it’s exactly like that.
