Would be helpful to have some keyboard shortcuts when entering a batch of Features or Requirements. Even if it was just a single shortcut for 'Save and Add Another'.
pleeeease we need this. massive productivity booster to have keyboard shortcuts. and please remember to include "?" as the master shortcut to see all shortcuts (try hitting "?" in the list view in GMail to see what i mean).
This is one of the first ideas that was submitted. However it hasn't gained much traction internally. One reason is that it is not clear to me exactly what functions would benefit from keyboard shortcuts. Although I use Aha! all day, every day, I am not much of a shortcut user (I have never used a keyboard shortcut in Gmail). Can you propose what features you would like to access via shortcuts?
Sure thing. Proposed keyboard shortcuts:
That's probably a good start. Until I use the product more I won't know what else is appropriate to add, but this gets the ball rolling. I noticed Esc already closes dialog boxes and that's a big convenience. Thanks!
A huge one for me is that the Esc key should close the Feature or Idea slideover. It's so natural I find myself doing it all the time and cursing.
I agree that the lack of shortcuts is a huge productivity killer for me. I use shortcuts all day in gmail and word, etc.
Would love to be able to jump to private comments while viewing an idea.
Especially the cmd+enter to save a comment (on Mac)
Shortcuts would be a must have for me. In JIRA I can do almost everything with shortcuts. In aha, that is superior in many ways for planning, I can't do anything with the keyboard and have to go back to the "slow" mouse.
I'm also try to make a Workflow in Alfred using aha API to be able to quickly add an idea (kind of stuff I already do with Trello and helps to stay focused when an idea pops in your head) ;)
Keyboard shortcuts are a vital feature in my life, and will be a major influence on my happiness with this product. Our company is moving from a system that is Jira exclusive to Aha, and not having keyboard shortcuts feels like moving into wet cement.
Any progress on this? Not being able to simply "Add" a task, initiative, etc reduces the usability.
I'd like to be able to at least add bullet points, different heading levels, etc without having to go find my mouse.
After a little sleuthing I can see you are using mce, or tinymce.
The latest version has a lot of these shortcuts.. so i suspect you just dropped some older version in the tool. I think you can do better!! You are playing in the big leagues now, a low-feature TinyMCE editor is not worthy of your product. Aha! deserves much better.
Latest version of TinyMCE has many shortcuts available:
PS- I can't edit a post, or I'd have combined this all. Sorry everyone
Keyboard shortcuts on pop-up dialogues would be useful (for example, deleting images from a feature, one after the other, triggers prompt after prompt that you have to manually click). Cancel/Yes options would be useful to just press C/Y keys, for example.
+1 on this. Definitely need keyboard shortcuts. Reference JIRA, GMail, Workflowy for ideas.
Key tasks that would benefit from shortcuts:
* Quick add for features and ideas
* Navigation (as described in this thread already)
* When a feature is selected, shortcuts to move an item to another release/parking lot, or opening the edit view for the item.
One of the single greatest features of JIRA is the Period (.) action menu. You can hit a period and it pulls up a type-ahead dialog that lets you search for any of the available actions you can take on the highlighted ticket. Between the up/down (also j/k) navigation and period, you can do just about anything you need.
Using Aha! today to do planning.
Today, I'm slowed down/annoyed/hindered by the lack of suitable keyboard shortcuts. Get the latest version of mce in there.. keep the shortcuts!
I'm dying here.
