There are many scripts that ship with Deadline, and it’s more than likely that you don’t need to use them all, especially the submission scripts. Via Monitor -> Super User Mode -> Tools -> Configure Script Menus, you can configure the contents of the individual script menus to only display what you use. You can also set icons and keyboard shortcuts for your script menu items. If a script menu item has the same shortcut as an existing menu item, the script menu item’s shortcut will take precedence.
Note though that these settings will affect all Monitors that connect to this Repository.
