Create a Wiki tab

Every channel accompanies a Wiki tab.

To add a completely new Wiki tab, select Add a tab Add button beside the other tab names in the channel. Choose Wiki from the tab gallery. Label the tab and begin writing.

Write content for your Wiki tab

Wiki tab is equipped with each of the usual formatting options, such as bold, italic, and underlined text, highlighting, headers, and lists.

Every document in your Wiki tab is named a page and every page is composed of various sections. To start working, label your page and then begin authoring sections. Whenever you seek to append a new section, simply hover over the left side of the page and press Add a new section here.

On the left side of your screen, you’ll notice a table of contents. This assists you to navigate swiftly between pages or even do some organising.

Note: A standard channel’s Wiki tab can be accessed by anyone on your team. A private channel’s Wiki tab is accessible only by members of that channel.

Chat from your Wiki tab

@mention someone in a section

To speak with a teammate about a page, @mention them in a section. This is especially useful anytime you want feedback or you’re waiting on someone else to make some input to a section to your page. After you @mention someone, they’ll get a notification in their Activity feed. Picking the notification redirects them straight to the section that requires their attention.

Start a chat in a section

If commenting right in a section is different to your style, you can always start a conversation in the tab itself by choosing Show section conversation Open chat button to the right of a section. Within there, you can post questions, leave comments, or @mention your teammates. You’ll have every single formatting and attachment options that are included in your regular compose box.

If someone else has previously left comments in the tab conversation, you’ll be able to see them in the channel. You’ll even know that someone has left comments in your Wiki tab because Show section conversation Open chat button displays at the top of your page.
