Draft Messages
A draft of a message to any number of recipients that can be sent now, later, or on a recurring schedule

Draft messages allow you to save a message to any number of conversations.

Conversations include:
  • Direct messages with other users
  • Multi-person direct messages (group messages)
  • Private channels
  • Public channels

To create a draft message:

  • Head to the Nightowl app home – make sure you are on the Home tab.
  • Navigate to the Draft Messages section and click
    πŸ“ƒ
    New button.
  • Enter one or more conversations to BCC.
    When more than one conversation is selected, semicolons will be used as delimiters to display the recipients after the message is created.
    ​
    E.g. a message to separately selected DM recipients @Jack, @Jill, and @Jen will show asBCC: @Jack; @Jill; @Jen whereas selecting a group DM between you, @Jack, and @Jill in addition to a separately selected DM with @Jen will appear as BCC: @Jack, @Jill; @Jen.
  • Compose your message.
  • Optionally enable the insertion of recipient mentions.
    The variable {@} will be replaced with a user tag in IMs and @here in other conversations.
  • Select whether or not to show the recipient(s) that this message is from Nightowl.
    Default selection can be modified in App Settings​
  • Select whether or not to show previews of linked content in messages containing URLs.
