Fed up of channel spam? Too many animated gifs for your liking? Has a message thread spiralled out of control? If that's the case then you can use our Block tool to make it read-only. Perfect if you want to keep your channel clean, tidy and free from extra noise.
You can use any Slack channel for this tool but you may like to create a new channel for your quiet mumblings.
All team members can view a blocked channel but can't write to it. Their message will appear for a split second, then get kicked off by the bot.
Enjoy having a channel for stuff that you want people to find easily such as important documents and policies.
You can use any Slack channel but you may want to create a new channel to post stuff you want to share. More on creating channels.
Use the Stackbot command to block all team members from the channel, then add team members who can comment.
Create a new channel or choose an existing one, invite Stacktodo in and type @stacktodo: block on. Now only you can write a message to that channel. Other members can only read messages and add emoji reactions to them. To enable another user to message on that channel type @stacktodo: block add @username. To block that user again, type @stacktodo: block remove @username.
