There are a couple of message flags you can add to the beginning of your commands which will force a command output to be sent to another location. I.e. command is executed in Twitch chat but the output needs to go to a Discord channel. These can be found below.

Message Flag Info
/chat This will force the message to post to Twitch chat no matter where the command source is from (Discord/Whisper/Chat)
/discord This will force the message to post to the discord channels you have set in the “Broadcast Channels” text box you have set in Master Settings no matter where the command source is from (Discord/Whisper/Chat)
/w USERNAME This will whisper the specified user regardless of the command source (Discord/Whisper/Chat). Typically in commands this is used with /w @user@. This requires whisper integration to be turned on in Master Settings.
/discord channel=CHANNELNAME This will force the message to post to the discord server linked in Master Settings to the channel name specified no matter where the command source is from (Discord/Whisper/Chat)
\r\n This is used in the middle of a message to post everything after that on a new line in Twitch chat. Effectively the same as typing a message, pressing return and then typing another message
\! Overrides Deepbots default behaviour regarding triggering internal commands. This will cause deepbot to post the full message to Twitch chat. Useful for Deepbot to communicate with other bots that also use ! as a trigger

@LookupInfo@ is an example of a custom variable that can return multiple things about a viewer. In order to facilitate this, the use of additional variables are required.
These can be found in the below table.
For example, to return the battletag the user that triggered the command has set up you would put @lookupinfo@[@l_btag@,@user@] into the custom message box.

Variable Description
@l_btag@ Show the battle tag for the user. @lookupinfo@[@l_btag@,expertsonline]
@l_followdate@ Displays the date the user followed the channel.
@l_hours@ Total number of hours the user has been watching the stream.
@l_lastseen@ Shows when the user was last seen talking in the channel. @lookupinfo@[@l_lastseen@,expertsonline]
@l_user@ Displays the username of the person who executed the command.
@l_intpoints@ Pulls points without the thousands separator.
@l_joindate@ Displays the date the user joined the channel.
@l_streamrank@ Displays the user's stream rank.
@l_hrstolevelup@ Number of hours until the user reaches the next stream rank.
@l_pointstolevelup@ Number of points until the user reaches the next stream rank.
@l_userclass@ Displays the class of the user. In order of priority; [Streamer, DeepBot, VIP Gold, VIP Silver, VIP Bronze, Mod Level 2, Mod Level 1, Viewer]
@l_nextrank@ Shows the next stream rank.
@l_viprank@ Displays the VIP rank of the user.
