Create a keyboard shortcut for squad troop requests

Post#1 » Sun Aug 13, 2017 6:27 pm

Most of you probably have a couple set squad troop requests for each situation. To save yourself a whole lot of time create an OS level keyboard shortcut (e.g. "omw" = "On My Way!"). This way the, requesting "3 bikes, 3 snipes and 1 troop" can be as simple as "swbst"

I have seen this mentioned before but dont think I can have keyboard shortcuts on my tablet. I did looK last time I saw this mentioned. Looks a useful idea though.

On my phone, I just copy/paste my favorite requests. I can save up to 6 different requests. It's fast and convenient for me and doesn't require my squadmates to interpret shorthand.
