Set your mouse aside with our keyboard powered Power Bar

Why click when you can type? The mouse is way over there, half a foot away from your right hand. Going over to grab it and drag your cursor around to click on something is only going to slow you down.

That's why our Power Bar is here to keep your hands on the keyboard. Use a few keystrokes to get more work done and get it done faster. This new feature optimizes the keyboard experience with more extensive shortcuts, actions, navigation and search.

Activate the Power Bar with two keystrokes

The Power Bar is available as part of Clubhouse Labs. Just enter these classic shortcuts to bring it up:

  • For Mac: cmd + k
  • For PC: ctrl + k

Or use your mouse to launch it via the lightning bolt icon in the top right navigation.

What can you do with the Power Bar?

  • Keyboard shortcuts: See the full list of available actions and shortcuts here.
  • Increased usability: Power Bar integrates search and navigation so that you can do virtually anything in Clubhouse using only your keyboard
  • Integrated with our Help Center: Surface the Help Center from the Power Bar so you can find articles and help more quickly
  • Context aware on Story Dialogs: The Power Bar knows which page it was activated on, enabling to display the most useful actions first. This currently works for Story dialogs with more to come here soon!
  • Persistent launcher: Power Bar can be launched from anywhere. If you forget the shortcut (CMD-K or CTRL-K), you can briefly engage your mouse to click the lightning bolt in the upper right
  • Helpful shortcut reminders: See keyboard shortcuts within the Power Bar interface. If you forget which shortcuts are available, you can see reminders directly within the interface

A few Power Bar favorites from our Housemates 

Our co-workers have been using the Power Bar for weeks now. Here's a few of their favorite ways to put it to use.

I save time assigning work to my team with the new shortcut to assign or unassign users to a Story. Just press "A" - Osei P

The ability to search is a game changer - I love that I can search directly from the Power Bar! Makes it possible to work more efficiently with less distraction of clicking into the Search Page or Navigation Bar - Sidd P.

Love using shortcuts but I have a hard time remembering what they are - the shortcut reminders are a nice visual cue/reminder! - Tiffany
