Edit a message
After posting a message, when you wish to add on, amend, or correct a typo, you can easily edit your posted message in Typetalk.
To edit a message, click on the "···" button on the message you posted and select "Edit". Simply update the message and click "Edit" or press Ctrl/Cmd + Enter to submit the edited message.
Did you know?You can only edit your own messages.
Mark as Edited
After you edit a message, Typetalk will show "(Edited)" at the end of the message to indicate that it has been edited. Team members who view it will know that it has been changed.
However, if the message was edited within 30 seconds of posting, “(Edited)” will not be displayed. This is so that messages with typos that are corrected immediately will not be marked as edited :)
