Sales/Purchases: Enter key allows for the recording of transaction (preference is disabled)

Can you please let the enter button record the transaction in account right live like it did in v19.7? I is so much easier to hit the enter button when doing data entry then to keep using the mouse to click on the record button!

I don't like to use the word wrong, but hitting Enter has never been a method of  recording  in MYOB, the shortcuts  are Control/Enter of Alt O.

Re: Enter button recording Transactions in account right live

What happened to the preference setting "the enter key works like the Tab key when entering data" - when this preference is off the enter key records the transaction - well that's how it worked in V19.x - is that not the same in 2012 - I haven't checked.

Re: Enter button recording Transactions in account right live

jenniek is correct - in V19.x if there is NO tick in the preferences box, when you hit the enter key, the transaction was recorded.

 

In 2012.x - there seems to be a problem with the programme when it comes to this, and MYOB do know about it.  On speaking with someone more senior from MYOB today it is an issue I have brought up and one they are looking at.  I have always preferred the enter key to work like the tab key, but in 2012.x it's not working anything like it did. 

 

It was also suggested that should you use the enter key after entering an amount, but you have asked the system to warn you if jobs are not assigned, instead of entering the data (and thus getting an error/warning) the software automatically takes you to the job number next for entering.  I can see the merit in this for someone who "looks" at the keyboard when they are typing, but for we data entry people I'm not so sure.

 

My personal preference, and the way I used to use it in 19.x is that when I hit the enter key after entering in an amount, I prefer it to work like a paragraph, aka going onto a new line so I can continue the data entry.  I often don't have to key a job number or another description so having to tab across through all of these extra fields to go to the next line is doing my head in. Having to use the down arrow to create a new line of data entry also doesn't work for me as I'm having to take my hand off the "working area" of the keyboard, which can cause errors.

 

So yes, I say bring back the way the enter key used to work in v19.x.

 

There are a number of posts about this Smiley Happy by searching "enter key".

Re: Enter key allows for the recording of transaction (preference is disabled)

I would like to add my "please add this back in" to the thread - most annoying not to be able to record with the enter key

Re: Sales/Purchases: Enter key allows for the recording of transaction (preference is disabled) - Status changed to: Already in product

Hi Everyone


AccountRight 2017 allows for the user to record a transaction by using the Enter key with the preference disabled. You do need to ensure that you are not in a free-form or selection field i.e. Ship to, Comments, description. For example, a field you would be able to select Enter to record the transaction from would be the Customer PO NO or Promise date field.

 

If you do have the Windows preference The Enter Key Works Just Like the Tab Key when Entering SOME Data enabled then selecting spacebar when on the Record button will record the transaction.

Kind regards,
Steven
