Keyboard shortcuts

Keyboard shortcuts facilitate actions. For the apps listed below, you can view the available shortcuts while using the app. Note: Most apps do not use all the listed shortcuts. For example, Alt+c does not work in the Users app because you cannot duplicate a record in the Users app.

The action associated with the shortcut may vary slightly for different apps – for example, in the Dashboard app Alt+n is Create a new widget.
