Share links to messages
Available on all plans
Cloud and self-hosted deployments
You can share links to Mattermost messages with other Mattermost users. Sharing message links displays a preview of the message in the post. The timestamp next to the username of any message also functions as a permanent link to that conversation.
Message previews respect channel membership permissions, so they’re only visible to users who have access to the original message. If the link is to a message in a public channel, any member of the team can see the message preview. If the link is to a message in a private channel or direct message, only members in that channel can see the message preview.

The timestamp next to the username of any message is also a permanent link to that conversation.
