Keyboard shortcuts improve navigation efficiency and accessibility, as they maximize the use of different areas and elements on a page. Using Business Central keyboard shortcuts helps users work faster, although learning how to use all of them may take a while. But providing your business's users with a list of some of the most important shortcuts will certainly come in handy, as they can explore all the ways to make work easier.
According to a study titled “Comparison of Mouse and Keyboard Efficiency,” the menu-keyboard method of selection is “more efficient after practice when compared to the menu-mouse system of selection” because it eliminates the time spent for hand travel between mouse and keyboard. Many adept users can even begin inputting text while the other hand is doing something different, so it would be ideal for mid- to long-term users to use keystroke sequences to select from a large number of task-related commands.
Here are some useful and common shortcuts your users must remember.
