Start a thread

Discuss any given topic with your teammates by starting a new thread inside a channel. Have an idea? Need feedback? Want to make an announcement? Start a thread. You can attach files, notify the relevant people, and format the post the way you like it.

Everyone who has joined the channel will be able to see and search for your thread, but only the people you notify will see the new thread as unread in their Inbox.
