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 @.

I'm down for this, but let's be real -- we all just want /gifs support

I just need some sweet /shrug and /tableflip power.
I agree bots are more powerful. There also makes sense to support Slash commands since they are really easy to get started with.
I think you'll find bots to be more powerful, after an initial adjustment period.

Goodness yes! Being a huge fan of Slack, those / commands are key to what I do. Not having this integrated here already is kind of surprising...
