Then do this...
PocketSave for Later

When your teammate shares an article in Slack and you think, "I need to read that later," quickly add it to your Pocket reading list by starring the message. When you do, the article will be saved to Slack.

Note: The Slack message can only contain a URL—additional characters will result in an error

Note: This Zapier integration doesn't import already starred Slack message, only new messages starred after you've enabled this integration.

How It Works

  1. A Slack message with a link is starred
  2. Zapier adds that link to Pocket
