The TVP Comms team relies on Slack for a lot of our day-to-day conversations, and we love it. But sometimes (like when you’re coming back from vacation), the volume of messages can be overwhelming. Luckily, Slack’s got my back and I found a new reason to love it: the All Unreads option.

Basically, instead of clicking through each individual channel and then scrolling through to read, mark as read, and manage a week’s worth of unread messages, they’re all in the same channel for you to go through. It lets you mark any (or all) of the channels as read with minimal scrolling.

Slack’s blog has details on how to set this up for yourself before your next vacation.
