Played the game and love it, but is there any way to have your units change formation by keystroke or menu? If not, this would be a really helpful addition

Yes and in fact here is the entire key stroke sequence:
Remote Assault can be played completely with the mouse, however using some or all of these key commands can help make giving orders easier. For many of these key commands to work you first must have a unit, squad or group selected.
