How to share an OSlash shortcut with others in the same workspace?

We built OSlash to make sharing your links with others as easy and breezy as possible.

There are more than a few ways to share OSlash shortcuts among members of your workspace. We explore them below.

1. Sharing shortcuts conversationally

Since OSlash shortcuts are designed to replace long links with everyday words we use in conversations, it is almost a given that you can share them simply by saying out loud — in phone calls, virtual meetings, or IRL conversations like watercooler chats and lunch banter at the office.

Example: “Hey Sara, where can I find our marketing budget for the year?”

“Hey Alex, it’s at o/marketing-budget.”

2. Sharing shortcuts using the OSlash pin

See the purple  circular widget in the screenshot below? That’s the OSlash Pin — our assistant widget that reveals the shortcut to the page you are on, activating only on pages that have been OSlashed either by you or a member of your team. It unfurls for seconds to reveal the shortcut name and then goes back to its original state. 

The copy icon on the right hand side of the OSlash Pin allows you to copy and share shortcuts as a link. When you paste the shortcut in any text editor, it gets pasted as a link that allows others to click on the name and navigate to the destination page easily. 

3. Sharing shortcuts using the OSlash launcher

You can also share a shortcut by copying it from the launcher. 

  • Fire up the launcher by hitting cmd/alt + J on your keyboard
  • Select a shortcut you want to copy
  • Press cmd/ctrl + c to copy the shortcut. You’ll get confirmation it’s copied (see screenshot below)

When you paste the shortcut in any text editor, it gets pasted as a link that allows others to click on the name and navigate to the destination page easily. 


4. Sharing shortcuts using the OSlash dashboard

  • Open the OSlash dashboard (use o/ + enter in the address bar)
  • Find the shortcut you wish to share and click on the Copy shortcut icon next to the shortcut (screenshot below)



When you paste the shortcut in any text editor, it gets pasted as a link that allows others to click on the name and navigate to the destination page easily. 

5. Sharing shortcuts using OSlash autocomplete

OSlash autocomplete helps you share links without needing to copy-paste them.

As soon as you type o/ in a text editor, autocomplete will suggest to you a list of shortcuts you can choose from to directly hyperlink a page. 

This way, you can share shortcuts simply by typing them out.
