Shortcuts module

Wanted to share the Drupal core Shortcuts module. I’ve seen this before and meant to share but I don’t think I see it here on the forum, perhaps I mentioned in chat. Alas, some may find it useful as a way to quickly navigate to assets or any other pages that are frequently used.

I’d like some favorite assets exposed directly on the dashboard for quick access.

The module allows you to create “shortcut sets” that are collections of links. Each user can choose a single shortcut set that is available at the top toolbar. Most pages (including assets/logs/other entities) have a star icon that makes it easy to add links to the user’s current shortcut set. Links can also include query parameters which is cool because you can provide filters to the Assets/Logs table views (only show assets with a given flag, or animals of a specified breed).

Note: this is a drupal core module that can only be enabled by the farmOS site admin. I believe it also requires a permission to allow other users to use it.

Here are some screenshots:

Wow… that was cool.


Interesting, must give it a try.


I showed this to @gbathree recently! :slight_smile:

Pretty cool to see the custom shortcut paths idea!
