Boss Mode Command
Boss Mode Command is probably the coolest feature Jasper has. What this does is that it allows you to talk to Jasper as if you were talking to a friend.
You can give Jasper specific commands, such as “write an introduction about…” and it will go ahead and do it.
However, there are some commands that work better than others. If you give Jasper a command and the output isn’t exactly what you expected, try phrasing it differently or being more specific.
As Jasper reads more and more input from users, it will get better and better. Just like you’re learning how to use Jasper, Jasper is also learning from its users and the way they write and express themselves.
To give Jasper a command, simply type it out, place your cursor at the end of the sentence, and hit Command + Enter (Control + Enter for those using Windows).
Let’s take a look at some commands you can try for different types of content.

Other Boss Mode Command Tips
To get the most out of Jasper Boss Mode Command, you should be as specific as you can with your input.
Here’s an example of three different inputs, one better than the other.
- Bad input – Write a blog post about martial arts.
- Okay input – Write a blog post about how to use Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense.
- Better input – Write a blog post about the top 5 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques for self-defense.
When choosing an output length, medium tends to generate the most relevant content. Large sometimes starts writing weird stuff.
Lastly, you want to help Jasper throughout your writing instead of just letting it ramble.
Basically, you want to do some of the writing, then hit Compose to let Jasper write a bit, then you go ahead and write another sentence to guide it, and then have Jasper continue for you.
You can also add urgency to your message by adding the word “today” in the keyword field.
- ***: Using three asterisks in your content will prevent Jasper from reading anything above that point. This is a great way to keep Jasper from repeating itself.
- ##: Using two pound sings (or hashtags, I guess?) at the beginning of a heading will encourage Jasper to write a paragraph underneath. This isn’t really needed, but if you’re having problems with your outputs, you could try using this.
- Command + Enter: Runs Boss Mode commands. For this to work, place your cursor at the end of the sentence and press CMD + Enter.
- Command + Shift + Enter: This will run the command but keep it on the document instead of erasing it.
- Command + /: Re-run the previous command to try for a better output.
- Command + Z: Undo the last change.
- Command + J: Will generate text where you currently have your cursor.
- Command + K: View the command history.
