Keyboard commands

Mixmax supports a full menu of keyboard commands that   make your most common actions instantaneous. With keyboard commands, you can quickly access the enhancement menu, templates, and sequences all from a compose window.

Slash Commands for Enhancements

For email enhancements (anything found under the “Enhance” menu), just type  / (slash) on a new line to get a full menu of smart commands. Below you'll see a comprehensive list of all the different slash commands Mixmax offers out of the box. This is particularly useful for instantly finding a street address, adding your personal calendar link to a message or inserting an image or animated GIF — and you can do them all without leaving your inbox!

Below is an example of how to share an animated GIF with teammates to celebrate awesomeness — type  /gif followed by a keyword:
