Global shortcuts

These keyboard shortcuts refer to the US keyboard layout for Windows or Mac OSX. Keys on other keyboard layouts may not correspond exactly to the keys on a US keyboard. Some shortcuts are available within a context. For example, if the focus is on a team channel, you can press C to start a new conversation. Or, if the focus in on a message in a team channel, you can press C to reply.
