Workflow editor keyboard navigation

Workflow editor keyboard navigation

The platform includes accessibility features that support Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 level A and make the interface accessible to users with disabilities.

These features improve the user experience when accessing platform functions with screen readers and keyboard navigation. In general, you use the following set of standard keyboard navigation functions:
  • Press Tab to navigate major groupings in a pre-defined sequence. This usually includes moving between standard interface controls (fields and lists) in a module, or between records within a tab.

    Press Shift Tab to move backwards in a pre-defined sequence.

  • Use arrow keys (left, right, up, down) to navigate between individual elements within a group. This usually includes moving between tabs, or between available selections within a specific control (for example, within a list).
  • Press Enter to select a control or tab, or enter text within a control.
The Workflow Editor is constructed in a unique manner. It includes a series of main (left) panel tabs, a series of side (right) panel tabs, and a drawing canvas for workflow creation or editing. As such, it has its own unique set of keyboard accessibility functions and commands.
