Enable keyboard-entry date and time shortcuts
The desktop version provided keyboard short-cuts to input dates and times, enabling me to keep my hands on the keyboard and my eyes on the screen continuously.
Maximizer LIVE instead forces me to constantly remove my right hand from the keyboard and shift my gaze from the screen to locate the mouse, grab it, find the cursor, move the cursor to the pertinent dialog box, search for the applicable date and time, and click it to make my selections, then return my right hand to the keyboard.
It would be MUCH less-disruptive to my workflow and faster if the capability to short-cut dates by the desktop method, which is 6 digits -- MMDDYY, which Maximizer recognized flawlessly -- were restored.
Also, restoring capability to enter time by keying-in either 3 or 4 digits plus letter 'a' or 'p' -- i.e. 632a for 6:32 AM, or 1234p for 12:34 PM which Maximizer recognized flawlessly would speed things along as well.
The point here is that the operator's hands never leave the keyboard, and his eyes never leave the screen. This improves the operator's concentration and progression from task to task.
I sense that it is young IT professionals' dependence upon the mouse -- resulting from their inability to use a keyboard without looking at it -- that has resulted in the heavily 'mouse-only' operating protocol.
They screwed up. Keyboard expertise that many (most?) older operators possess is not an ability that should be ignored, discouraged, and/or PENALIZED, just because younger developers never developed their own keyboard expertise.

Thank you for your suggestion. We have started to address the keyboard access issue. In the previous releases, we have introduced keyboard shortcuts to go to modules. You can use keyboard shortcuts to save or cancel in dialogs. In the upcoming 2020 release, you can use keys to access UI element in header bar. We will continue putting efforts to support more keyboard shortcuts in future release. Your suggestions will be considered. Thanks
