Can someone point to the correct resources for adding commands to my messaging extension under the compose message box. I'd like to add a command or two the way Zoom does it when I click their icon below the compose box. See in the screenshot circled in red below. My extension currently has one action command that just takes a parameter and produces a super basic card in the compose box.MST Zoom messaging extension.PNG

@marcusyoung This will appear if you pin your message extension app with multiple action commands. To do so, please click on the 3 dots icon in your compose area, right click your app and click pin. You will then be able to see this behaviour on left click on the pinned icon.
