Focus stacking (Focus shift) faster implementation?

You can start by pushing either the AF-On button or halfway on the shutter button to focus (typically on the foreground).

Then press the Fn2 button (which can be set to access "My Menu") with "Focus shift shooting" at the top of the screen. Then you push the Center button then you push it again and the sequence starts.

That is four button pushes on three separate buttons to start the sequence

The Olympus E-M1 II can be set to (Focus) BKT mode (and even left there after turning off the camera). You press partway on the shutter to focus then all the way down to start the sequence.

One "full" push on one button to start the sequence

Can the D850 be set to implement the sequence with only one or two pushes? Clearly the files are of higher quality than the Olympus, but for my purposes pushing all these buttons on several parts of the camera is clumsy at best.
