I am super tired of typing each user separately in the search box and do this every day.

Better to have a daily digest of these users send to my email box.

Slack has no "follow" feature, where you can mark users you want to follow and then see all their message in a filtered view.

It would not be too hard to build a bot that does that though, so you might want to check the App Directory for a Slack app with this functionality.


The All Unreads view might be what you're looking for: it provides a digest of all unread direct messages as well as messages in channels that you haven't muted.

Enable All Unreads under your Preferences > Sidebar settings:

Then, click All Unreads in Slack's sidebar:
