You should be familiar with the features below to use People View in Slack-integrated workspaces effectively:
- What the Slack hashtag tells you
- Finding Slack channels & group chats
- How the Recent conversations section works with Slack channels.
The Slack hashtag is used to identify:
- Slack contacts connected to this Sococo space, who are also members of the space, but currently not online in Sococo. These people are still available for you to message or "get" from Sococo because they are online in Slack.
- Slack contacts who are not members of this Sococo space. From Sococo, you can message them and see if they are online or offline.
- Slack channels and group chats.
Finding Slack Channels & Group Chats
You can use search to find Slack channels and group chats. When fewer than five matches are found, they are displayed as one-click action cards. If more than five matches are found, the results are displayed in a filtered list.
As shown in the screenshot below, from a one-click action card, you can:
- Click on the Star to add or remove a Slack channel (or group chat) to/from Starred.
Note: Updating Starred is bi-directional; your Starred list in Slack is also updated when you update it from Sococo, and vice versa.
- Click Open channel chat to post a message to a Slack channel from the Sococo chatbox.
How Recent Conversations Work with Slack Channels
Good news: lots of activity in your Slack channels will not reduce the relevance of your Recent conversations.
Slack channels are added to the top of your Recent conversations list only when you post directly to them, or you are mentioned (using @).
