I'm all for shortcuts but try to bear in mind cross platforms and standards. ZXCV are going to be universally used with only a variance of modifier key on many platforms... Why not map to the more standard <esc> for Cancel instead? Or present a way for us to mod the JSS to choose our own keys?

I agree with @Sterritt, user-defined shortcuts would be much more efficient for administrators who use Windows to view and modify their JSS setups.

This is life changing... It's the little things.

since these don't work on my mac running safari 7.0.5, JSS 9.25.. are there any shortcuts besides pressing [enter] to save my changes?

Although Control 1-3 works, IF I lift the Control key and press it down again with the number.

Just be careful with what browser is used because interesting enough while in a jumpstart yesterday for iOS we witnessed where typing in a text field that the letter B would cause the browser to jump back. This was in Internet Explorer. I didn't get the version but it's believed that it was version 9...possibly 8.

I don't know if any other shortcuts are affected like this but it's kind of scary to think that something could accidentally happen that shouldn't from a browser compatibility issue. At least the jamf guy who was remote viewing could see it so they don't think I'm too crazy. lol
