Key-Mapping on Steps

It would be helpful if we could map hotkeys to the keyboard that could have stand-alone triggers.


When you type something into google you instinctively press enter to submit instead of clicking the search button. This may sound like just a minor Quality-Of-Life addition but this would improve the UX for our internal customers in ways that would reflect positive for Tulip as a platform, leading the conversation to promote more instances and licenses.

hello @joey.wheeler, thanks for posting!! are you familiar with the following Keyboard Shortcuts from the App Builder??

based on what I’m understanding, this should help the quality of life you’re mentioning.

does this make sense?? let me know if you have further questions!!

My apologies. I meant for the app user to type into a text box and press enter to activate a trigger sequence.


I do have exactly the same question / issue. To ease the use of my created Tulip apps for the end users I need to assign triggers to specific keyboard keys, e.g. the “enter” key to run a search trigger via a connector function.

This would not only improve the usability for the end user but also speed up process times due to less changes from the keyboard to the mouse (for clicking buttons) as the used input device.

Hi @joey.wheeler, @Alex-
We are considering implementing this, and think it would be very useful, but have no specific timeline as of yet. Thanks for posting, we will keep you updated if things change.
