Hi @David_Ruder, thanks for reaching out.

As part of the new My Tasks, custom Rules have been rolled out to My Tasks (:tada:) meaning the Tab-Y, Tab-U, and Tab-L shortcuts are no longer in use.

You can now use two different keyboard shortcuts to quickly move tasks that are assigned to you between the sections in your My Tasks.

  • Use Tab-Y when the task pane is open and the task is assigned to you to open the section mover menu for your My Tasks.
  • Use Tab-U when you have one or more tasks selected to open the section mover menu for these tasks (this works in both projects and in My Tasks!)

Once the menu is open, you can navigate it with the arrow keys and hit enter to select the section. We are going to keep iterating on this feature to make it even better!

That’s a real shame - I use that quite a bit. It was a really quick way of triaging new tasks. Howcome? Did not many people use it?

Might be worth removing these shortcuts from the Ctrl + / help page!

Haha, ok - there are a lot of changes here - and the option to totally customise my tasks. Great!

I knew something had changed, just need to do some reading
