What is the command menu?
The command menu lets you find and use all of these keyboard shortcuts. Think of it as your central hub of actions in Todoist that helps you navigate, add, and edit tasks without leaving your keyboard.
You can find lots of single letter and combination keyboard commands that are faster than using the mouse to do things like complete a task, find a specific project, or simply navigate back home.
