How To Forward Multiple Messages In Slack

Slack has become the top choice for many people and teams when it comes to collaborating and communicating. Among its numerous useful features is the option to forward messages. This allows users to easily send a message to another person or channel without having to manually copy and paste. However, if you have several messages that need to be forwarded, Slack does not have a built-in feature to do so all at once. Fortunately, there are workarounds available. Let’s go through the process of forwarding multiple messages in Slack.

Method 1: Manual Forwarding

The simplest way to forward multiple messages in Slack is to do it manually, one at a time. Here’s how:

  1. Hover over the message you wish to forward. You’ll notice that a set of icons appears to the right of the message.
  2. Click on the More Actions icon (represented by three vertical dots).
  3. Select Copy Link.
  4. Paste the link into the desired channel or direct message. The message will automatically be quoted, including a link to the original message.
  5. Repeat the steps for each message you wish to forward.

Method 2: Using a Slack App

If you have a lot of messages to forward and doing it manually seems like a daunting task, you can use a Slack app, like Reacji Channeler. This app forwards messages that are marked with a specific emoji (or Reacji) to a designated channel. Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Install the Reacji Channeler app in your Slack workspace.
  2. Choose the emoji that will trigger the forwarding of a message.
  3. Select the channel where the messages will be forwarded to.
  4. React to the messages you want to forward with the chosen emoji.


Slack is a powerful tool, but it doesn’t cover every possible use case out of the box. If you’re looking to forward multiple messages, you’ll need to either do it manually one by one, or use a third-party Slack app. Either way, it’s possible to streamline your communication and collaboration on Slack with these methods.
