slash commands are a must-have
Slash commands for just about every type of function are a must have. They are familiar and easy to use without having to touch your mouse, they are UI-agnostic. Admittedly not terribly discoverable – but the UI is even worse, as their is no real option for auto-completion of UI elements, now is there?
We’re updating our command library all the time, so keep checking the menu in the command box to see what’s new by typing / or @.

All, since it appears the admin missed the vast majority of the sentiment of this thread, I have logged a more specific request here:
Please vote again.

Alex, since when? having Slash commands means being able to add our own, not just use yours
Alex tech commented
not sure if I'm missing something but / is not giving anything and @ only gives option to mention or add a bot. Not really any useful command as I was expecting
Cameron Steffen commented
Isn't the whole point of slash commands to be able to use commands in the same input as where you type chat messages? The "command box" silly. If you're going to have a dedicated "command box", then there is no point of starting every command with a slash. You have the worst of both worlds.
Slash commands aren't available from the chat interface and only from the search interface and completely misses the point. So no, you don't have this.
Daniel Walker commented
The reason nobody knows about this is because they expect the slash commands to work in the chat and channel conversation box, not the "command box".
Is there an update on this? I feel like a Microsoft has given up on UserVoice
Travis Springer commented
Need to add a command for "reset status". There are commands for manually setting it to all of the other statuses.
Matt O commented
Agreed, this is a must have. But no update for almost a year???
Ahmed Mujovic commented
Any update on this? Driving Teams user adoption with this command is critical for our company, as crazy as that sounds. being able to /command stuff is huge and saves a ton of time in Slack.
Tom Bollens commented
It would be very powerful to have the ability to define your own slash commands, would this be on the roadmap as well?
David Willequer commented
Need /giphy commands stat!
It does not appear you can do a /org on yourself. Is that expected behavior? Would be helpful to see where you are in an org
Do this! We need /quote and /code !

Exactly. Plus, this would have the advantage that the power bar would no longer break the UI model for the platform. The search bar, being interactive, should be in the client area of the window. The title area of the window should be reserved for the conversation title.

This would be nice to add as the slash command /giphy
Search string is half the message

Would be awesome if the "power bar" was completely moved and integrated into the existing chat bar.... Feels really awkward to have several places to click on and command in.
It would then be possible to "/giphy" in the chat bar instead of clicking... Mouse = bad. :D
Joar Ekendahl commented
I'd love it if the "power bar" actually went away and merged with the regular chat bar down south.
really need some form of /code for code blocks. Hipchat had this and it made sharing snippets really simple. Sharing a codeblock in teams is 3 mouse-clicks MINIMUM, and more if you actually want to tell it what syntax highlighter to use. This is the opposite of simple, which makes conversations less likely to happen, and therefore progress less likely to occur.
