Keep your relationship healthy

I manage a slack for my friend group. My wife and I have a private channel. By far our favourite feature is slacks reminders. We use it to remember to take out the garbage, to read the daily stoic etc.. However, the best use is to remind ourselves monthly to check in with one another, see how the relationship is doing, what we're struggling with, what we're grateful for.

How to mark all channels as read (use with caution!)

We have dozens of channels on the Product Hunt team, most of which I don't need to actively check. As a result, several channels are bold with unread messages creating a visual distraction.

To mark all messages as read in every channel, hit SHIFT+ESC. But be careful, you can't undo it.
