We have Slack in our company with dozens of different channels, many of them with hundreds of people.
People often send annoying
@here messages that are really not relevant to that large audience in that urgency.
@Channelcheck out the new article XYZ wrote about us!
@Herewho knows when is the next leap year?
@Channelwe got a new delivery of office supplies. Come to the service room if you need a blue pen.
This is really distracting as these non-relevant messages keep on popping and beeping and it seems like people have no sense of what is urgent and what is not.
Even if we tell person X not to do it, a few days later, that person Y will post such a message. New people are joining the company, not all share the same channels and definitely none of them read messages that were posted a few days/weeks in the past in a general channel. This is why posting a
please do not do it message doesn't seem to be effective.
We can't leave or mute these channels as from time to time, there are relevant messages there that we should know of.
Any ideas on how to handle this?
