Add Message

Quip is a mobile productivity app that combines docs, chats, tasks, and spreadsheet in a single app, enabling faster and easier collaboration. The app integrates all messages and docs into a single thread. Using this activity, you can add a new chat message to the specified thread. To do this, add this activity to your canvas, and configure it. Select the required Access Token for Quip.

In the ‘Thread Id’ field, specify the ID of the thread to which you wish to add a new message. You can set a frame for your message (bubble, card, or line). Specify the content of the message in the ‘Content’ field. If you are planning to specify the content of the new message through parts (rich content), do not enter message in the ‘Content’ field. You can enter rich content of the new message as JSON encoded array. If you wish to attach files to your message, enter the ID of the pre-uploaded Blobs in the ‘Attachments’ field. You can also add messages by specifying the Ids of the required Annotations and Sections.
