Posts are the backbone of any organization in Slab. With multiple ways to create posts, we've made it easier than ever to put pen to paper, whether you want to start from scratch or import from another source.
Creating a post from scratch
To create a post, click on Create post in the top right corner of the home or topic page.
When you create a post while on the home page, it will be uncategorized; creating a post on a topic page will automatically add the post to that topic.
From your browser's address bar
You can begin drafting a new Slab post in no time by visiting slab.new in your browser.
Using the left sidebar, you can also quickly create a post within a topic/subtopic.
To create a post via the left sidebar:
Hover over the topic/subtopic
Click the … menu
Click Create post
Use mentions to create a new post within an existing post. Click here to learn more about mentions.
To create a post via a mention:

You might have posts across different tools you would like in your Slab workspace. Slab can import files in multiple formats to help with that.
