In our quest to completely remove unnecessary clicks, we created a game-changing feature: /Slash Commands.

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

How to use /Slash Commands

After typing a slash / to activate the Slash Command menu, use one of the available shortcuts to efficiently adjust task details, access formatting options without a click, attach or embed files, and more!

Note: Options will vary depending on where in ClickUp you are working.

When you've chosen your command, use the keyboard to navigate and set the information, just press Space or Return to submit the change and continue working away.
