Power Bar

Shortcut's Power Bar is way to navigate, create, and use our most common features. With a simple keyboard command, activate the Power Bar and see what you can do!

To use the Power Bar:

  • For Mac: Cmd + k
  • For PC: Ctrl + k

Power Bar works in conjunction with the Keyboard Shortcuts; you can activate keyboard shortcuts at anytime, but if you forget a shortcut, just open Power Bar to search for the action and see a reminder.

There are 3 major functions of Power Bar (Navigate, Create and Do) that are combined into a single interface.

  • Access any page in Shortcut quickly by typing Go to [page]  in Power Bar, or just searching for the page. If you find yourself navigating between pages often, feel free to bypass Power Bar all together and use the keyboard shortcuts directly (G then )! These can be activated at anytime (no need to open Power Bar first), but also show up in Power Bar just in case you need a reminder of the shortcuts.

  • Create new work items in Shortcut through Command Bar! If you don't want to leave the keyboard, start creating a new Story, Story Template, Epic, Iteration, Label, or Objective right from Power Bar!

    Shift + N Create a Story from Template
    n then ep Create new Epic
    n then i Create new Iteration
    n then l Create new Label
