What are the shortcuts or hotkeys that can be used with the Oracle B2C Service Console?

You can use several hotkeys and shortcut keys to help you navigate more easily in the Oracle B2C Service Console.  Please note, these hotkeys and shortcut keys cannot be disabled.

Note:  The Ctrl+f functionality works differently if you are in an explorer or if you are using an incident or opportunity report.  When using an explorer (such as the Reports Explorer), the Ctrl+f shortcut brings up the Find feature.  From an incident or opportunity report, the Ctrl+f shortcut brings up the Forward feature so that you can forward the record that is selected in the report.

Ribbon Tab:  You can mouse over buttons on ribbons and tool tips which will display shortcut keys.  To display shortcut keys on the ribbon:

  1. While editing a record or working in an explorer, press Alt plus the first letter of the ribbon tab that you want to display shortcut keys for. For example, press Alt+h to display the shortcut keys on the Home tab of the ribbon.
  2. Type the keys associated with a particular button to perform the button's action. After using this method to perform an action, the shortcut keys no longer display.
