Get Recent Messages

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 get a list of recently added messages to a 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 of which you wish to get recent messages. Then, mention the number of messages you wish to get. You can also use the ‘Max Created’ field to get the messages that were created before the given max_created_usec in microseconds.


Once you have entered the details, click on ‘Done’ and run the flow. This will return a list of recent messages posted in the given thread.
