Our platform's keyboard accessibility improvements allow you to easily navigate and take action through most functionalities in Flodesk with just your keyboard or keyboard interface.
This is important for members who can't (or prefer not to) use a mouse or touch screen. It can also help you save time, completing repeatable and tedious tasks faster.
