Better keyboard shortcuts

For me, the entire purpose of a keyboard shortcut is efficiency. It's meant to be faster.

Why is 'assign task to me' 

(Left) Alt + Shift + .

?

That's 3 buttons, and to make it worse, requires both hands!

Maybe take a look at other software and web apps such as Gmail and how they have one button (eg. p/n for previous/next message in an email thread) or occasionally 2 keys together, but always doable with one hand, otherwise I have to take my hand off the mouse and it's no longer any faster than just doing long, slow multiples clicks with a mouse.

If you're worried about people accidentally hitting shortcuts, allow us to turn them off. Or customise them. Just please, don't force them to be really silly, complex 3-button shapes that are really intuitive and spread across the whole keyboard! 

Thanks

A previous request re keyboard shortcuts is now closed for comments, so I'll add my $0.02 in here...

I really need a keyboard shortcut for processing my Inbox and Archiving or Snoozing items. Requiring me to use my mouse for this slows me down. Any efficient power user of a computer uses a lot of keyboard shortcuts rather than the mouse. 

The currently available keyboard shortcuts are insufficient.

Can you please open the discussion again Wrike team, re the new keyboard shortcuts required?
