Use /Slash Commands

  • Updated

Quickly add rich text, attach images, move tasks, change due dates, and more using /Slash Commands. Combined with the Command Center, you can remove almost every unnecessary click!

What you'll need

Supported locations

Use of /Slash Commands varies by location. Some of the most popular uses for these commands include:

  • Task views and subtasks: Use /Slash Commands in task descriptions, comments, and when creating new tasks and subtasks. Some commands available in tasks aren't available in subtasks.
  • Docs: Most commands are available to use in Docs.
  • Whiteboards: Many of our /Slash Commands can be used in Whiteboards.

Use /Slash Commands

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

  1. Type a forward slash / to open the /Slash Command modal.

  2. Scroll to find a shortcut and click to select.

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

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

      When using /Slash Commands in Notepad, expand to full screen to easily view all commands.
