Navigate around your board
You can use the arrows of your keyboard to navigate easily around your board just like in Excel.
You can also use the "Tab" key to navigate to the cell to the right within a row or the first cell in the row beneath the one currently highlighted.
Navigate to the previous cell
Use "Shift + Tab" to navigate easily to the cell to the left of the highlighted cell or the last cell in the previous row.
Edit cell content
Once you are on a cell, hit the "Return or Enter" to edit the contents. Simple as that!
Close editing any cell
To close the cell after editing without saving your changes, hit "Esc".
Clear cell content
Use "Backspace" on a PC and "Delete" on a Mac to clear the contents of any cell. But be careful! There's no way to undo this.
Copy, paste and cut cell content
As with other programs, you can copy, paste, and cut cell content using your keyboard shortcuts. You can also copy any cell's content and paste the text anywhere you want outside of monday.com!
Post an update
If you'd like to post an update you have written in the Updates Section press "Command + Enter" and your update will be submitted.
Click on an item and then hold down "Shift" while clicking on an item lower in the list to select the range of items in-between. This enables you to move, archive, or delete the list of selected items all at once using batch actions!
We hope these shortcuts come in handy as you're navigating around monday.com!
