    It would be helpful if it was faster to access the "doors" page of the controls.

    How about whenever the park button is pressed it shows the "doors" control page? This would work even if the car as already in park.

    I love this suggestion, as only myself or my wife open the doors for our kids. It should be an option in the settings screen.

    Whenever I put mine in park the door screen does pop up automatically. What I found is that it does NOT pop up if you have the controls page open. Close the controls page and just display the map, music or anything else and you will see the doors page pop up when you put the car in park.

    Agreed that it would be nice to have one button access to the doors control menu. As @cclaygo mentioned, it does pop up when I out the car in park but if I click away, there is no one button access.

    When you first put it in park, the doors option pops up. For those other times we've made it a habit to leave the controls screen on the doors tab. That way it's just one press (controls) to get to the doors.

    From the post title, I thought this would be about having a soft button for the Auto Park feature, which I think would be great. You have to double-tap the park button on the stick to trigger; however, I'll pull up to the garage, put it in park, then want to send it into the garage via Auto Park. To do that now, I have to put the vehicle in drive again, then double tap. Would be nice to have a button on the doors pop-up that said "Auto Park".

    Tesla needs to give us the ability to make customizable "Macro" buttons that persist across all screens!

    I actually tried to press the park button again to get that dialog. Seemed like a clear and obvious choice.
