I find the 5R dial almost useless, reprogram for digital zoom

I have only have had the 5R for a few days and it will take some time to learn all its features. I was excited about the dial but it proves to be somewhat useless. I would like to use it to either change the digital zoom or set the exposure or change the white balance but it does none of those.

Using digital zoom is somewhat painful as it requires to go down two menu when maybe I have to do it quickly, I know I could just crop later but I don't like to do that.

I wish the dial could be totally reprogrammed and even the FN doesn't list some of the functions I would like to have handy. It really takes too much time to go through all the menus.

Are there any solutions?
