How to Use Messaging Features in Slack

Purpose: Slack has various messaging features to make communication on its platform enjoyable for all users. Messages typed can contain formatted text, user mentions, emoji reactions, attached files, and slash commands. Additionally, users can interact with a posted message by reacting with an emoji, replying in a thread, sharing, or saving the message. A list of options for each feature can be found in Slack’s support guides.

**Some slash commands may need the application added to your Slack account before using.**
