Keyboard Shortcuts in Timeslips
It is my opinion that there are two types of people (in the world of data entry):
Mouse People vs. Keyboard People
In the process of writing this, I found a great blog discussing which is better (http://gigaom.com/collaboration/mouse-vs-keyboard-the-great-divide/).
For those of us who are keyboard people, Timeslips has some wonderful shortcuts to speed up data entry. Here are a few of my favorites:
|SHORTCUT||WHAT DOES IT DO?||WHEN IS IT USED?|
|Control + N||New entry||New slip, payment, client, reference|
|Control + S||Saves an entry||Save slip, client, payment, reference,
|Control + O||Opens selected entry||Opens slip, payment, client|
|“T” in date field||Today’s date||Date in slips, transactions|
|“S” in date field||Same date||In slips, copy date from prior field|
|2-digit number||Date (current month/year)||Slips, transactions (enter the 2-digit
date for current month, current year
|Control + L||Opens the list||Slip list, transaction list|
|Control + Pg Up||Go to first entry||Slips, transactions|
|Control + Pg Down||Go to last entry||Slips, transactions|
|Shift + Control + 1||Switch to nickname 1||Slips, transactions|
|Shift + Control + 2||Switch to nickname 2||Slips, transactions|
