I am currently building a web application that does task management.
A very common function is to "delay" the current task, which means that it will be postponed until sometime in the future. There is already a link to click to delay with the mouse, however, I would like to make sure that this can also be done with the keyboard, for advanced users like me.
I do this very often, so I did not want to use a slower key combination like Ctrl + D (not to mention that it's already used to mark bookmarks). I really expected a unique key solution.
The function keys tend to have purposes already in the browser, and in laptops like mine and some others, you have to enter a Fn + combination to really use them.
I did not want to use any of the letters because it is very common to have a selected text field, and you would end up writing in that field instead.
I'm temporarily using the "delete" key, however, even if I have the same first 3 letters, I think it's a bad idea. I have already accidentally deleted emails several times when selecting the wrong screen. (Fortunately there is a trash bin). I am sure that once the application is made public, this will cause immense frustration.
So, my question, is there a standard set currently for what key could be used to delay, postpone, postpone, etc.? Does any other program that you know have a similar function?
Which key would you recommend as the most intuitive for this function?
