Shortcuts

A shortcut is a series of custom actions that are performed sequentially when the shortcut is triggered.

Note

Linked actions within a shortcut must all come from the same device.

Adding Shortcuts

To add a shortcut:

  1. Click the user icon in the top right and click  Admin  >  Resources  to access the Resources homepage. 

  2. Click the  Devices  option on the left navigation column.

  3. Click the Custom Profiles tab.

  4. Click the name of the custom profile you wish to edit. The Custom Profile Properties side panel opens.

  5. Click the Shortcuts tab.



  6. Click Add Shortcut.

  7. Enter a Shortcut Name.



  8. Click the Actions drop-down and select Add Delay Action or Add Device Action.

    • For Delay Actions, enter the Time (in seconds) to delay the next action. This can be useful, for example, when creating a shortcut on a cable tuner to tune to a specific channel that requires multiple button presses.

    • For Device Actions, select the action to be executed from the Action drop-down menu.

  9. Repeat step 8 to add as many actions as needed.

  10. To change the order of actions or remove an action:

    • Click the
      icon next to an action and select Move to Top, Move Up, Move Down, Move to Bottom, or Remove Action.

    • Change the number in the Order field next to an action.

    • While clicking and holding the drag handle on an action, drag the action to the desired spot within the shortcut.

  11. Click Add Shortcut.

Once created, shortcuts can be linked to a button in the Control UI or invoked from Behaviors.
