Flags are a great way of ear-marking your important messages and announcements both in your individual chats and in teams. Unlike starred messages, messages that are flagged are publicly visible to other members of the conversation.
Flagging becomes handy when you assign a quick task to someone over a chat, make an important announcement, or summarise a discussion in team chat. It becomes extremely easy for members of the team that are not present during a discussion or those who work in different time zones to catch up with previous discussions.
Here's how you can flag a message:
1. Go to the message you would like to be flagged and click on the ⋮ 3-dot menu to reveal message options.
2. Click on Flag from the message options to flag a message.
Viewing Flagged messages
To view your flagged messages in any conversation, simply click on the 🚩 Flag icon on the secondary options menu.
