Just Launched! — New Keyboard Shortcuts in Aha!

Keyboard shortcuts help modal

Mouse vs. keyboard. Which one do you prefer? For most of us, the answer is probably a blend of both. A mouse is great for viewing menu options and choosing the one you want. But when you know exactly what you want to accomplish, a quick keyboard command can save your wrists.

New keyboard shortcuts will help you quickly switch between workspaces, start a new search, create records, update statuses — and much more.

You could already use keyboard shortcuts to carry out a number of useful actions in Aha! — such as formatting text and aligning paragraphs. And with today’s update, you have even more commands at your fingertips to help you work faster. 

Memorizing shortcuts may seem a little daunting. Do not worry — we created a helpful modal that lists all the new commands. You can access it by typing the ? key. (Yep, we created a shortcut for the shortcuts.) 

Here is how you can save a few clicks using the new keyboard commands:

Find what you need
Want to quickly switch to a different workspace? Just type the S key to instantly open the workspace dropdown menu. Need to start a new search? A single forward slash will get you there.

New tooltips and inline help throughout the application highlight relevant keyboard shortcuts.

Create and edit records 
Type the A key to add a new record. The record modal type is determined by the page you are on. So if you are on the features board as the example below shows, the shortcut command will open the add feature modal. Next, you can assign an owner, change the status, and add a watcher with simple commands. You can also quickly add or reply to a comment.

Type the P key to open and close the parking lot on the features board.

Start using the new shortcuts today — soon it will become second nature. And please let us know if you think of any other keyboard shortcuts you would find useful.
