Can I create keyboard shortcuts for views (Front, Top, Left etc.) in SW 2016?

I'm currently using Solidworks 2013 which allows me to create shortcuts for view planes. For example I have the numbers on my keyboard keypad mapped to different view planes so that I can quickly switch to front, back, left etc views quickly. Similar to a net diagram of an unfolded box, see below.

I've always used these shortcuts as a part of my efficient workflow, but now after upgrading to Solidworks 2016 this function seems to be lost.

 

 

 

When I map the shortcuts in SW 2016 and try to use them I get this message which is a completely different function:

Any idea how to fix this so that it works the same as SW 2013?
