Friday Feature - Jumping from Tab to Tab
Let's talk Escape keys. I started the conversation last week and now I am on a roll. I love using my keyboard. I am not a big fan of the mouse. Anything I can do while typing, I am all for it. If you are similar, then you are going to love this Friday Feature. Let's say I am working my 1099 list and I have a question about a payment to a vendor. This is what I do:
- I create a search which results in a list.
- I click on a record on the list which opens the form.
- I click on the quick link to the vendor which opens another tab (Vendor).
- I click on the quick link for one of the payments which opens another tab (Payment).
What is a non-mouser to do? Glad you asked. I can use my control key and the number placement of the tab to jump back and forth.
- Want to go to the Search: Ctrl+1.
- Want to go to the List: Ctrl+2
- Want to go to the Form: Ctrl+3
- Want to go to the Vendor: Ctrl+4
- And so on.
Seriously, if you kept quick linking to more records (adding more tabs to your workspace), you could just add one more number to your ctrl+x number placement to jump to that tab.
Now I have to admit that I didn't know about this Ctrl+4 stuff with the new quick links, so this is an undocumented (at the moment) feature! I hope you are as tickled as I am to discover this easy productive key combination that works anywhere in the system.
