Available Commands in Your Slack Workspace

Jarratt Isted Updated by Jarratt Isted

There are a number of commands you can use to create, search, and share your docs all without leaving Slack. Here's a complete list of them.

Commands within the Slack Integration

Complete List of /commands

When you connect the Slack integration we add /commands to your team: /hd

This lets you interact with your docs (the ones you write in the Content tab). On any command you can add help to get a list of all the things you can do.





search [query]

Search your articles for [query]

create [title]

Create a new article called [title]


Get a list of all commands

The first time you use a /command you'll be prompted to log in to HelpDocs. If you're desperate to do this manually, just type /hd connect.

Creating a New Draft

Use /hd create TITLE to create new drafts. Just use the command, choose a category (or leave it blank), and jot down team ideas and bullet points for later straight from the modal.

Searching and Inserting Docs

Whether you bring customer support into Slack or you want to share external or internal articles with the team, you can edit or share articles directly in a channel.

Type /hd search TERM and you’ll get a list of the most relevant articles.
