Why click when you can type? The mouse is way over there, half a foot away from your right hand. Going over to grab it and drag your cursor around to click on something is only going to slow you down.
That's why our Power Bar is here to keep your hands on the keyboard. Use a few keystrokes to get more work done and get it done faster. This new feature optimizes the keyboard experience with more extensive shortcuts, actions, navigation, and search.
The Power Bar has been released from Shortcut Labs and is now available to all customers! Just enter these classic shortcuts to bring it up:
Or use your mouse to launch it via the lightning bolt icon in the top right navigation.
Our co-workers have been using the Power Bar for weeks now. Here are a few of their favorite ways to put it to use.
Create work faster
I save time assigning work to my team with the new shortcut to assign or unassign users to a Story. Just press "A" - Osei P.
Search from anywhere
The ability to search is a game changer - I love that I can search directly from the Power Bar! Makes it possible to work more efficiently with less distraction of clicking into the Search Page or Navigation Bar - Sidd P.
Quickly copy Story URLs
I'm often referencing Stories in Slack. Now it's easy to copy a Story that I want to reference with option+c (mac) or alt+c (pc) when I want to share something. - Tiffany
Helpful shortcut reminders
Love using shortcuts but have a hard time remembering what they are? Shortcut reminders are a nice visual cue/reminder! A favorite of the engineering team is the shortcut "i" that allows you to assign yourself as the Owner of a Story.
