Slash commands in Slack

Slash commands act as shortcuts for specific actions in Slack. Some Slack apps offer slash commands, and there may also be custom slash commands built by members of your organisation available in your workspace.

To use slash commands, type a / forward slash in the message field or click the
 lightning bolt icon to the left of the message field to open the shortcuts menu. Search for the slash command that you’d like to use, then send the message.

Note: By default, all members can use slash commands. If they like, workspace owners can choose to limit access for multi-channel guests.
