How to Increase Speed & Efficiency in Microsoft Teams with Slash Commands

Do you use Microsoft Teams often, then I am going to share with you some of the best slash commands that can increase your speed and efficiency while using this communication tool.

If you are not familiar with what a slash command is then let me tell you that, a slash command is basically a short written word or phrase, that initiates a specific action within an app when preceded by a slash (/).
