Business value

Proficient users are more productive when they can access commonly used features using their keyboard, without having to explore the action bar to find each one. Developers now also get the possibility to respond to end-user feedback by adding keyboard shortcuts to their solutions.

Feature details

Developers can add keyboard shortcuts to most actions and operations via an AL property. This means that application developers can specify keyboard shortcuts for actions in the base application and their own objects from their extensions. This complements the predefined list of keyboard shortcuts in Business Central and enables more flexible development for partners.
