Create a new message and introduce yourself

Introduce yourself in a new email or start a fresh collaboration session to really put your ideas into motion with Spike. Create a new message and strike up a conversation in a snap on mobile and desktop. 


It only takes a few taps on your phone or a few clicks of your mouse to begin a new message. Spike does everything for you (except taking those great ideas directly from your brain and putting them into the message for you).



When inspiration has struck and you’re on-the-go, create a new message by tapping on the ‘New Message’ pen icon in the bottom right corner.



Create new conversation



Select who you want to send the message to by either scrolling down through your contacts, or typing their name and selecting them. 


New message contacts



Tap on “Your message…” in the message composer, to begin a conversation. Easily add attachments, pictures, GIFs and voice recordings, or encrypt your message by selecting the icons in the bottom selection bar. You can even channel your inner Michaelangelo and add your own doodle!


To send a new message from your desktop, click on the ‘New Message’ pen icon in the bottom right corner.

Select who you want to send your message to and type your message in the space below where it says “Your message….” in the composer.

You can change text and background color, add attachments and links, or even insert GIFs or emojis from a complete library. 

Pro Tips: 

If you’re short on time, or you just live for shortcuts, press to add an attachment, and   to add GIFs. 

To start a new conversation, press (or ctrl + N on windows).

Bonus Pro Tip:

Since Spike loves working with multiple accounts, press to change the account you are sending the message from. 


You can now take on the day and connect with your team from any account and any place on Earth that you may be.
