Keyboard shortcut to navigate Calendar opened with //



I'm filling a Table in confluence and one column is for a date. I use the // shortcut to open the calendar and the current day is selected by default.

I'm looking for the keyboard shortcut to navigate the calendar so I can easily select another date (the previous day in my particular case), and avoid using my mouse.

Hi @Martin Renaud 

welcome to this wonderful community!

You can navigate through the calendar using the up and down arrow keys! (Mac) 


I'm on a Mac and for me, the arrow keys are closing the calendar (with the selected default date of today). I tried Cmd+arrow, Option+arrow and it does the same. Am I the only one experiencing that?

Hi @Martin Renaud 

hmm strange - left and right does nothing, up and down works fine (it's Macbook) maybe it's something with the settings?

ok, which settings could be involved in this? It is a pretty standard MBP and both external keyboard and laptop keabord arrows just close the calendar.


Just to recap what I do:

  1. Navigate to a cell where I what t date in it.
  2. Tap // to open calendar - Opens a pop-up with 3 choices
  3. Tab Enter to select Calendar (default selection at the top, there are Filter result + help also available)
  4. Then the calendar show up with today selected
  5. This is where I want shortcut to select another date - arrows don't work

I will check this out on macbook and with external keyboard 

Were you able to reproduce this situation? Or maybe it's just me!?
