Creating tasks with /teamline slash command
To create a task, simply begin a message in a Slack channel or direct message, type /teamline task name @person duedate (eg. /teamline Send investor slides for review @Isaac by tomorrow at 3pm)
Instead of /teamline you can use the shorthand /tl with the same result!
The /teamline slash command is designed for power users. It offers a lot more options to manage tasks directly in Slack, but can be a little more complicated to learn.
