How To Take Notes During Huddles On Slack

Do you want to write notes while participating in Slack huddles? Or do you want to document important topics discussed at the meeting for everyone participating? In any case, you can use the threads feature to start chat discussions or take notes during your huddles on Slack. Follow our quick guide below to learn how.


Huddles on Slack allow users to meet with other channels or conversation members for a quick discussion on the app. By default, huddles make use of your microphones, but users can opt to turn on their cameras as well.

During huddles, there might be situations where you want to write down notable details and information that you can use in future discussions. If that’s the case, you can use the threads feature to write notes during your quick meetings on your channel.

After starting a thread, other participants can reply to it to start a quick discussion outside of the meeting. In this way, everyone can continue talking about the topic after leaving the huddle.

Here’s our guide about starting threads on huddles in Slack.
