Keyboard Shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts let you take common actions directly from your keyboard.

Purpose

Perform common actions with less effort. Most helpful when you are taking repetitive actions like assigning a channel to all the tasks you just created, snoozing multiple items to the backlog, or starting and stopping timers.

To use keyboard shortcuts that edit a single item like "start a timer" or "set planned time" you need to make sure some task or objective is selected.

In the main dashboard view, the currently highlighted task will have a gentle shadow border around it.

To select a task you can:

  • Hover over it with your mouse
  • Open the task page
  • Open the task in focus mode
  • Navigate and select the task with your keyboard.

Best practices

  • Don't try and learn all the keyboard shortcuts at once. Just pick a few that are critical to your daily workflow. The ones that will save you the most time and effort are:
    • A to add a task
    • # or Q to set a channel
    • ~ or W to set a planned time
    • T to enter Today View
    • F to enter Focus Mode
    • Space for starting/stopping a timer
    • ESC to close your current view
  • Using the command palette is a good way to start familiarizing yourself with the keyboard shortcuts. Once you are comfortable with that, you can graduate to using shortcuts.
