KEYBOARD MANEUVERING FUNCTIONS FOR GENERAL JOURNALS

When entering a long general journal it is very time consuming to have to click each column to enter data:

First click to enter [type account] and click again to enter [type description] and click again to enter [type credit or debit amount] AND click again to start a new line.

 

My suggestion is to create keyboard shortcuts such as "TAB" or "ENTER" and/or use of the "ARROW KEYS" in the general journal so you can enter data quickly and maneuver between columns and rows. As you already need to type the account, description and amount.

It's crazy Carla - people have been asking for this since AT LEAST 2016, but somehow it's not a function.  Cleary developers have not actually entered a journal themselves, ever.

@thekenyan - the earliest request for this functionality I've seen is **2014**.

I agree, whoever developed the screen has never watched anyone enter journals.

Having to enter the account description rather than number is also aggravating.

Honestly Im baffled that this needs addressing. There is a post from 2015 where someone is suggesting this, and it still hasnt been implemented. Who the hell is designing this???? GET RID OF THE MOUSE MYOB!!!

Does anyone even monitor these suggestions? I mean your customers have been asking you for at least 5 years to allow them to use tab or enter to move through data entry faster, but for some reason you are still insisting on a double mouse click??????????????

 

Every time I have to lift my hands from the keyboard and touch my mouse is an absolute failure on your part, and one that is a consistent source of EXTREME frustration.
