This is a quick tutorial to explains how to send a direct message to all members in a Slack channel. Memo is a Slack app that lets you do that. Here you just have to invoke it in a Slack channel and it will send a DM to all the members instantly. However, in the free tier, it can only send DM to 4 people at max. The app is very simple and straightforward and only requires you to specify the message that you want to send to your teammates. With this, you can instantly send a DM to all members in a channel in no time and then receive a response in separate private chat.
Sometimes when you want to send the same message to team members separately then you have to copy-paste that. You have to send the message manually to each member by opening the respective chat. But with the Memo Slack app, you don’t need to do that. Here you just add all the members in a channel you want to send a message and use the Memo app with the message text. This will save a lot of time and it is kinda interesting. This works pretty much like WhatsApp’s broadcast feature.
