Command bar is a widget that pops up in the center of your screen that allows you to create new things in Heartbeat, navigate around the platform and actually access all of our help guides and documents. For now, this is an admin-only feature.

Where to find the command bar

You can open the command bar by clicking the Command button in the bottom right sidebar of your community. Alternatively, you can use the keyboard shortcut Command+K / Control+K to open the command bar.

How to use the Command Bar

There are 3 ways you can use command bar:

  1. Take action in your community

  2. Navigate around your admin settings

  3. Access the Help Center

Take action in your community

Some examples of actions you can take using command bar are:

  • Create channels, threads, DMs, courses, docs, and events

  • Download user data

  • Change a user role

  • Deactivate a user

  • Add a community experience

Navigate around your admin settings

You can navigate to any settings page within your community using the command bar prompt. Simply type the setting you'd like to change or edit.

Access the Help Center

When you type a query in the command bar, it will also search our entire help center for articles that might help you get what you need done.
