One type of shortcut is part of the CloudBees CD/RO Home page facility and records the location of a page you visit frequently (either inside or outside of CloudBees CD/RO), so you can return to that page with a single click from the Home page. Another type of shortcut is a context-relative shortcut to property paths. This shortcut can be used to reference a property without knowing the exact name of the object that contains the property. You might think of a shortcut as another part of the property hierarchy. These shortcuts resolve to the correct property path even though its path elements may have changed because a project or procedure was renamed. Shortcuts are particularly useful if you do not know your exact location in the property hierarchical tree.
