Slack has become a collaboration tool we can’t work without at Creative Elements Consulting, it’s so well designed, it saves us a lot of resources!

But how many times were you writing a message and wanted to structure it better by going to the next line but pressing “Enter” or “Return” simply sent it?

Frustrating eh?

Guess what, there’s a simple solution!

When you want to format your message a bit better and add a few more lines of text to enhance a bullet point list of any kind of detailed info, simply hold SHIFT and press RETURN on Mac or ENTER on PC.

That’s it!

You can now format your Slack messages better without sending just a big block of text your collaborators have to decipher.

Have you tried it? Do you have a favorite Slack keyboard shortcut or feature? Let us know in the comments below!
