Tempo Planner Best Practices: Keyboard Shortcuts

The Tempo Planner team is proud to announce that we are introducing keyboard shortcuts to our product!

[callout class="tip"]By using keyboard shortcuts, you can:

  • increase productivity
  • stay focused, and
  • reduce repetitive strain.


They also provide a easy and quick way of performing fundamental actions without having to take your fingers off the keyboard.

Understanding the ins and outs of how a product works makes it more enjoyable and efficient to use. And hey, we’re here to help!

Introducing the keyboard shortcuts

Here are a couple of keyboard shortcuts which we recently released for JIRA Server and JIRA Cloud.

All of the keyboard shortcuts are available on our Team Members Timeline in Tempo Planner.


Let’s get started, shall we?

Copy and pasting plans on the timeline

Users can now copy and paste their plans on the team members timeline with a keyboard shortcut. Reduce the time it takes to plan for your team. This is a great feature for managers who need to plan an issue for multiple team members.


Push the Shift button, click on a plan on the team members timeline and drag it on the timeline. This will copy and paste the plan on the swimlane for an individual team members. See in more detail here below.

Split plans on the timeline

Splitting plans on the timeline has been a much requested feature for awhile now. So we decided to simplify life for our users by implementing the split plans option.


Split plans by hovering over the plan in question while pressing and hold the CTRL (cmd for Mac) button. Click on the part of the plan where you’d like to split the plan.

Delete plans on the timeline

Deleting a plan is now possible directly from the team members timeline.


Simply click on a plan that you want to remove and push the Delete button to remove plans from the timeline. This will open up the Delete Plan dialog and from there you can select to delete a plan.

Back out of a plan

Accidently created a plan and want to back out? Now you can. Whenever you select a plan on your team members timeline you can back out of it by pushing the ESC button on your keyboard.
