View a message's edit history

Users can view the edit history of any edited or moved message.

Messages with any content edits are labeled EDITED, while messages that have only been moved to a new stream or topic are labeled MOVED.

Organization administrators can disable message edit history.

View a message's edit history

Via the main message feed

  1. Click on the message's EDITED or MOVED label shown next to a user's name or to the left of each message in the message feed.

In organizations where message edit history is disabled, you will never see a MOVED label; messages that have been moved will be marked as EDITED just like those whose content has been edited.

You can use Shift + H to view the edit history of the selected message.
