Slash commands

The Slash command lies at the heart of what makes Colabra unique.

To start, type “/” in your project or experiment summary. This will open a list that allow you to insert content blocks from simple headers, to advanced integrations.

Slash commands

You can use slash commands to insert:

  • headers

  • bullet, numbered and to-do lists

  • images

  • tables

  • code blocks

  • Protocols and recipes

  • Links to other experiments

  • LaTeX equations

  • DNA sequences

  • Molecular structures

  • Microscope images

  • Lab inventory/equipment

  • Collaborator mentions

  • Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents

  • Any other kind of file

The Slash command is how we keep the product lightweight and intuitive, even after we’ve begun to add more blocks and third-party integrations.

If there is a block or integration that you would find useful, please don’t hesitate to let us know!
