Slack is a business communications platform that enables you to stay connected with your team.

Within Slack, you can use slash commands to quickly access different aspects of the Teamwork integration.

Note: The Slack integration is available on per-user Pro/Deliver plans and above, as well as certain legacy plans.

These action commands can be accessed by first typing /tw in the message field in a conversation or channel, followed by one of the supported commands.

Some of the commands enable you to take actions relating to the channel you are in, while others allow you to control settings for your own profile.
