Which important actions can you take in OSlash?
In OSlash, shortcuts are created and made available to everyone in a workspace.
You can create a new shortcut for everyone to use, create a collection to share with a custom group, or create private shortcuts meant just for you.
- Create a new workspace shortcut for a link or snippet
Everyone in your workspace will be able to navigate to the link or snippet you’ve OSlashed by typing o/shortcut-name in the address bar of the browser.
For example, you & your team would be able to navigate to your insurance page by typing o/insurance in any tab’s address bar. Or to auto-expand a thank you email simply by typing o/ty in your email editor. The keywords you’ve used in the shortcut name and description for the page will be indexed in the OSlash search, making it much easier to reach it intuitively
- Create a new private shortcut for a link or a snippet
By default, any new shortcut you create will be a workspace shortcut. But, you can also create a shortcut for a link or snippet that is only accessible to you. You will be able to reach the page by typing in the shortcut name, just as you would access a workspace shortcut.
- Create a new collection of shortcuts
The collection you created will be accessible to those you share it with. It can be reached by simply typing o/collection-name. A shortcut within a collection can be reached by using o/collection-name/shortcut-name. If the collection is created using the extension window, then it can be used by everyone in the workspace
Search with Keywords
- Press o/ + space
OSlash launches an Omnibox search. Once you hit the space bar, you can type in the keyword and OSlash would search for it across the workspace and your private shortcuts and their descriptions. As you type, the search would render results closest to the keyword. This way it’s easy to get to a link or snippet even without remembering the exact shortcut
- Press o/ + enter
Typing o/ and pressing enter takes the user to the OSlash dashboard. On the dashboard, the user can see a list of all the shortcuts and collections created in the workspace and take actions such as editing a shortcut or creating one
- Press Alt + J (Windows) or Command + J (Mac)
These keys are keyboard shortcuts to power the OSlash launcher that helps users navigate their tabs, activity, and shortcuts easily
