You may have noticed but hopefully you didn’t! that I migrated all the Slack messages over to the Slack Archives channel this morning. I at least, don’t see any evidence/clutter unless I go to the Slack Archives channel and look directly.
The only thing that isn’t “done done” is the content of “posts” are still on Slack. The start of a topic that comes from a post looks something like this:
with a link back to the Slack copy of whatever file started that off. I’ve downloaded all these (there are about 40-45 of them) into a Google Drive folder, and there are then a few options:
- Leave things alone and trust Slack to stay around as long as we care about the content in those.
- Edit the posts to contain links to the GDrive copies (where you trust Google and me to stay around).
- Attach the relevant file to each starting post, which puts everything on Slack.
I’m guessing that the last one would make the most sense, but it would probably take a couple of hours which I won’t have for a while.
