How to view tasks in a Slack channel

Tasks in a Slack channel automatically create a Space in Workast. 

Tasks are shown both in Slack and in the Workast web app. To view the Workast tasks in a Slack channel, click on the channel where the tasks were created

  • To see the tasks in a channel, type: /todo list
  • This will show all the open tasks in that channel


  • The tasks shown are "Only visible to you"
  • You can share the tasks publicly in the channel, by clicking the green button "Share in conversation". This will share the current list in the channel to all the participants.
