Shortcut keys basically help provide us an easier and usually quicker method of navigating and executing commands in computer software programs. Shortcut keys are commonly accessed by using various keys like the Alt, Command key (Apple systems) and Shift key sometimes in combination with other keys. As you start using the shortcuts while working on Odoo 10 or any other program you will start noticing that your piece of work/task is finishing much quicker than using a cursor enabled device like the mouse to click on various options.
Below are the various shortcuts mentioned for Odoo version 10:
These keyboard shortcuts are for all Operating systems i.e Linux, Windows, and Mac OS.
As you can see that the functions which we need to use and the keyboard shortcuts have a matched initial like for e.g. creating a record we use ALT + c (create).
These are the shortcuts that Odoo provides to the user by default. If a user wants, they can create custom shortcuts in the js file of their custom module. We can also create custom shortcuts for POS module in Odoo to make things work faster as POS when implemented is a touch interface system, but when the module is prepared or customized for POS it is non – touch interface. So rather then clicking on those buttons we can simply provide the one-button keyboard shortcut for swift inputs so that our job is completed quicker and on time.
So we can summarize it by saying that using these shortcuts from the perspective of Odoo user/developer will be very beneficial and an ease of use in daily work done for quick results and better yield.
