Slack is the communication platform of choice for many companies, but the search function is difficult to search if you have dozens of channels. Fortunately, you can use Slack's history feature to quickly find your most recent conversations on your desktop or web client.
Slack conversations generally take place in channels that most people can see or in direct messages (DMs) that only those in the conversation can see. Traditionally, these conversations are listed on the left, with a search bar at the top of the screen that lets you search specific channels or messages from specific users.
Fortunately, Slack has been enhanced with a History feature that allows you to quickly access a list of your conversations in the most recent order. This applies to both channels and DMs.
To access your most recent conversations in Slack, select the History button that looks like a clock. The icon can be found in the top toolbar, to the left of the search bar.
This History button opens a menu with your most recent conversations in order. Click on any of these channels or DM's to jump back into the discussion.
