Applies to: Microsoft Teams.
Commands are shortcuts for running frequent tasks in Teams: update your status, find a specific channel, present your recent files and saved messages, and more.
To employ a command, state / in the command box at the top of Teams. You’ll notice a menu of every command we now support. Pick your desired command, choose Enter, and Teams handles the rest.
Tip: You can also press Alt+K (Windows) or Option+K (Mac) to open the command list.
Commands are free to use for everyone using Teams, but if a particular command is operating incorrectly for you, it may be because your organisation has deactivated a feature central to the command. For example, if chat is disabled for your organisation, chat-based commands won’t work.
