Users likely have used the command prompt to accomplish a common or admin task. Did you know Teams has commands? The top search bar in Teams can input commands. We will look at some today.
Slash command in Teams web and desktop allows performing common tasks. Do things like update status, go to a specific channel, show recent files. Click the mouse in the search box and type slash and see all the commands available. Press alt+k or option+k to open the command list. Appreciate these slash commands because they save time during a busy day.
Common slash commands:
The first check of the slash commands will show a long list of supported commands. There is a total of 18 commands that are supported. Teams has these but if something isn’t working then the organization disabled the feature. Some commands are above.
Not keyboard shortcuts:
The focus is on slash command and these should not be compared with keyboard shortcuts. These are different things. Slash commands are for a common task but shortcuts are focused on the navigation of Teams. We explain them in a post. Check out the dedicated Teams tag for more Teams news and information.
