Use /Slash Commands

  • Updated

In our quest to completely remove unnecessary clicks, we created a game-changing feature: /Slash Commands. Use this feature to quickly add elements like rich text, attach images, move a task, or change a due date.

 

Combined with Command Center, you can do anything without lifting a finger!

 

What you'll need

 

Use /Slash Commands

To use /Slash Commands, navigate to a location where they can be applied.

  1. Type a slash / to activate the Slash Command menu.

  2. Find a shortcut by scrolling through the menu with your mouse and clicking to select.

    • You can also press Tab or use the arrow keys, and press Return or Enter to select.

    • After you've memorized some frequently-used commands, you'll just type / + the command + Enter, Space, or Return.

 

Supported locations

You can use Slash Commands in the following items in your Workspace.

 

Task views and subtasks

  • Use /Slash Commands in the description, comments, and when creating new tasks and subtasks.

  • Some of the commands available in tasks aren't available in subtasks.

Docs

  • Many of the /Slash Commands available in tasks and subtasks are available in Docs.

  • There are also some that are unique to Docs.

Whiteboards and more

/Slash Commands are also available in Whiteboard, Columns, Chat view, text block Dashboard widgets, and Notepad.

Note: Columns commands vary depending on the location where Columns are created.
