Is there a keyboard shortcut to assign a task to a person?


Is there a quick way to assign a task to someone? Or is the only way to click the 'person icon'?

ah i see you can just hit 'tab' a couple of times and you get to the assign drop down, cool.

My problem is related to this question :

When I add a task and fill in the seperate values and skip to the next (for example from date to person) with [Tab] I am able to select the person, that the task should be assigned to, but I'm unable to confirm the creation of the new task.

Am I missing something or is this just not possible without using the mouse ?

You should be a able to tab until you get to the "Assign to person" field and use the UP/DOWN arrow to select a person and press enter to confirm it.

Hello Clyde,

unfortunattelly this isn't working - the only message I get is :

"No matches. Press ESC to hide auto-completion."

I tried selecting with the arrows, typing the name and just typing the first letters. Nothing seems to be working.

Some more input :

I tried your method with Chrome and it works. With my default browser Firefox (version 24.5.0) this isn't working.

Unfortunately, we can't guarantee correct functionality in older browsers, even though theoretically it should work in Firefox 24.

Please try to upgrade your browser to the latest version 29.0 and see if it helps (I can't reproduce this is FF 29).

Best regards,
