Some other time-savers

Right-click on cells (quantity, location, unit price, discount)This will give you the option to “Fill Down”. “Fill Down” will input every cell in the column with the same data in the current cell.

This is useful if all the items in your table are going to be the same discount, for example, and you don’t want to input it one by one.

This is available in listing views and in the item selection dropdown on the order.

Right-click on headers in listing viewGives you the option to Export Contents to CSV, and creates a .csv file for you.

This is available in most tables, e.g. Bill of Materials or Purchase Order List.

Right-click on headers in listing viewGives you the option of exporting specific orders from the system (i.e. details such as what’s on the order). This can be used to send recent transactions to other programs for invoicing etc.

This is available only on Sales Order and Purchase Order listing views.
