I've got a co-worker who accidentally pushes "c" all the time which accidentally archives things that should still be active. Is there a way for a user to disable keyboard shortcuts?
What is just *brutal* about the keyboard shortcuts is when you mis-click a text entry and start typing, they start applying. So I go to edit a title or description, and suddenly I do 5 unexpected things to the card because I didn't actually get the input to focus.
I really want a way to disable these. ESPECIALLY ARCHIVE! Our team has lost a ton of time to `c`. Why is that so easy to do!
+ 1 to this.
I made a browser extension to disable all shortcuts on Trello (except tab, escape and enter).
Sad to have to do that, but since Atlassian don't want to address this issue...
To anyone needing a solution to this here is the extension: https://github.com/SosthenG/trello-shortcut-killer
Agree completely with the above complaints. The UI is slow to react when clicking in a text box (in our case Custom Fields are the main issue) and anything typed before the textfield is accepting input is taken as a shortcut.
I would remove every single shortcut in a second (except 'f' for filter) so there is almost no upside and a huge downside. Archiving with a 'c' is extremely dangerous.
This really is needed, as there are so many keys that can quickly derail a project with cards spontaneously archived, mislabeled, etc. The only other option may be to not auto-apply in a card/board and allow escape or some kind of undo.
Disabling the keys as a preference (including by default for the whole board and all users) is by far the easiest to implement.
Can I add my vote as well? I've had several frustrating episodes of trying to revert whatever my intercepted typing had done.
What would mitigate it somewhat would be an undo feature. If I could just hit that a few times within a short grace period, I wouldn't mind the errant commands as much.
It's so frustrating to miss a text input and have 100 things change on a card. Or to not realize your browser is focused and accidentally move a card without noticing.
We use the custom fields power up with a lot of text inputs and it happens at least weekly on our team.
An option to disable these would be invaluable
I've fat-fingered several keyboard shortcuts that removed labels or archived cards. There wasn't even a confirmation involved; I didn't even have to hold CTRL/CMD for it to happen—I just had to hit a letter key and boom, ticket vanished and I had to go figure out what I did. Definitely please revise this.
We use Trello as our main issue-tracker/kanban-board at work. I've almost lost track of cards because of the shortcuts, all it takes is my cat stepping on my keyboard. I always have to make sure to never have Trello as my active tab when a cat is nearby, or else I risk problems in our workflow.
+1 to all this. Im really disappointed cause I might need to stop using Trello until we get the ability to disable keyboard shortcuts. Personally, no other web app I use has keyboard shortcuts--I only ever use them by accident, its always going to be unexpected. I don't want to become a power user, I just want a reliable board that I can't accidentally obliterate with a few misplaced keystrokes. This is game-breaking. Cards are shifting around by accident, archived by accident, etc and I rarely notice anything's going wrong because I don't realize I'm accidentally pressing a key. (And with any other tool I use, pressing ONE key w/o CTRL is never this destructive. Its way too easy to accidentally perform an action I don't want.) Its just all around a very unstable experience. Please please please lmao Im literally begging, my job depends on Trello.
