Would be so handy to have a keyboard shortcut to access the auto import menu. We do this hundreds of times daily.

As a workaround while waiting for Adobe to implement this suggestion, you could add your own shortcut by editing the TranslatedStrings file, as described here: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/custom-keyboard-shortcuts/ .  You'd change these two lines:

"$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/File/AutoImport/AutoImportSettings/Key="
"$$$/AgLibrary/Menu/File/AutoImport/EnableAutoImport/Key="

You might also add your me-too vote to this topic: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/custom_keyboard_shortcuts_in_lightroom, which is somewhat different than your suggestion, but it would also solve your problem.
