Until now, sending a message in a Slack channel to @everyone would bring you a warning that you were about to fire out a notification across time zones that might wake some people up.
Ever wanted the ability to get the attention of people in channel there and/or working? Refresh to make it so. ??✅??❎ pic.twitter.com/Q7FfVsPPps

Now there’s a new feature that lets you direct your shout at just the ones who are online. Type ‘@here’ before your message and it’ll notify team members who are active and ready for action, leaving your slumbering pals in peace.
Nice one, Slack. Much more useful than emoji faving (though that’s turning out to be pretty cool).
