Keyboard shortcut for Status Update?

TNTP Feb 15, 2012

Hi, we just upgraded to Confluence 4.1.5. I see that typing S to update your status is no longer a valid keyboard shortcut.

Is there a keyboard shortcut that allows users to update their status?

Great question! S is indeed not working anymore, even if it still says that in the status update dialog...

Looks like you would need to write a custom plugin now, with a Keyboard Shortcut Module.

Hope this helps

In Confluence 4.0 it was once declared like this:

<keyboard-shortcut key="updatestatus" i18n-name="admin.keyboard.shortcut.updatestatus.name" name="Update Status">
    <order>50</order>
    <description key="admin.keyboard.shortcut.updatestatus.desc">Update Status</description>
    <shortcut>s</shortcut>
    <operation type="click">#set-user-status-link</operation>
    <context>global</context>
</keyboard-shortcut>

In newer versions the shortcut is now used by the system plugin share-page. While you can disable the single keyboard-shortcut module of the plugin, it looks like it doesn't restore the old shortcut to update the status.
