Friday Feature - Approving Requisitions Quickly
When I am creating the screen captures for documentation, I am as close to a "real" user as I can get because the picture needs to be realistic. That is why one of my favorite features released in 12.01 was the changing of the Approve Requisitions activity to a direct edit list.
An a direct edit list is a list where you get to type right in the column cells, kind of like a spreadsheet. Why is this so cool? Because you don't have to open a form or save/close or anything. You just type. Check it out.
All I have to do is go to the Action column and type what I want, then arrow down. See how the first three are set to Approve? Its because I simply typed the letter A and arrowed down for each one. The next one is denied because I typed DEN and arrowed down. Then two more "A"s and a DEF and I am moving right along. It is that quick and easy.
The same thing is true for entering an approval comment. I simply type whatever I want in that cell and Escape Online will automatically save it to the requisition when I post the approvals.
Now that's a real feature for a real user!
