I want to post a snippet to a thread in slack, not the main channel. I can't figure out how to do this in the Windows x64 client. Any thoughts? Is it possible in another client?
According to this post you can't:
You can’t add images (we post screenshots within conversations ALL THE TIME), run any slash commands, or add code snippets.
It's sad really... I use threads a lot but they have some usability concerns.
You are not directly shown the option to post a snippet or an image in a thread. But there is a workaround for this. Steps
- Post the snippet/image in the channel or DM (I DM myself for this and delete it later)
- Copy Link to snippet/image
- Post the link in the desired thread. Slack shows a preview to the snippet/image in the thread itself as if it has been posted in the channel/DM as a normal snippet/image
Hope that helps!
