Depending on the audience, how about "Housekeeping Functions" or "Maintenance Functions"?

I am documenting a piece of hardware that has an LCD screen and a keypad.

âBy pressing different keys or key combinations, you can do the following things (plus more):

View the serial number
Test communication with the central radio Return the unit to factory default settings Adjust the LCD screen's contrast

These functions are activated by pressing two buttons simultaneously, pressing and holding a single button, or pressing and holding a button while the unit is powering up.

Since the functions are so diverse, I'm trying to come up with a generic name for the appendix they'll be listed in. So far, all I've come up with is "Key-invoked Functions," but it sounds cryptic to my ears.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Debbi
