Add Keyboard Shortcuts (edited)

Hi Simplifi,
I am looking for a quick page on keyboard shortcuts.  With most well designed modern user interfaces, the simple '?' key press pops up a page showing the relevant keyboard shortcuts for the given context.  If you do offer such shortcuts, please add the '?' shortcut.   I have searched this forum and the help pages for a summary of keyboard shortcuts to no avail.

So far I have used Simplifi for about six months now.  Keyboard shortcuts would make the application far more usable IMHO.  Mice are nice when starting out, however a mouse is most certainly not for power users. Using a keyboard to do everything is the way to go.

For a nice example, see the keyboard shortcuts in google mail.  Note that one needs to enable this option, it is off by default as it should be (keyboard shotcuts . Gmail knows how to do shortcuts.  I can breeze through emails rapidly using a keyboard.  This is especially nice when using a laptop - no mice handy.

What makes simplifi show for me is when I review and edit transactions, I would like the review and editing process to take a fraction of a second.  That is how long it take for one to identify and know how to fix a transaction.  Yet as it stands it takes -10-30 seconds per transaction, click here, change the category, make a note. It is very slow and cumbersome and kind of ruins simplifi.  I do not review transactions often, so I have 10s to 100s of transactions to review and categories, add notes for myself.  I want to get this done fast.  And yet I have to devote an hour or more for the task. It kind of kills the experience for me.

With gmail, I can read, respond, and compose emails blazingly fast. But only with a keyboard. Using a mouse is considerably slower.  Power users know keyboards - it is the way to go.   And, if you want to copy, follow the keyboard shortcuts in gmail.  They are awesome.  Are you using kubernetes for hosting on the backend?  Are any of you using k9s?  k9s is another application with keyboard shortcuts done right.  It makes an app a power app.

All the best,

    Hello @justme,

    Thanks for posting your inquiry to the Community!

    Aside from being able to tab through fields and use the Enter key to select Categories and things of that nature, Simplifi doesn't offer keyboard shortcuts. With that said, I have gone ahead and turned this into an Idea post requesting the addition of keyboard shortcuts so other users can vote on it and our Product Team can review it. Please be sure to add your vote as well!

    Selecting multiple transactions (but not all) is a bit tricky currently. I have to craft my filters in a specific way that allows me to filter in the transactions I want to edit and then select-all. Having the ability to select a range of transactions by selecting the first and then selecting the last while holding Shift would be handy.
