- Post reply to channel – When “Show messages as threads” is enabled, comments and replies associated with a highlight are posted as replies in the corresponding Slack thread. When a thread has been updated due to a reply, Slack doesn’t make that fact visible in the associated channel. If a thread is no longer visible to a user because newer messages have been posted the channel, that user would not know that a thread has been updated. When you enable “Post Reply to channel”, Numici posts the latest comment in the channel along with a link to the thread.
