Entering Items in either Quote or SO

Hello,

I have been entering my first Quotes and SO recently. After entering a
Quote for 40 items, I have come to believe that the system could use
some improvements.

  1. I am very much limited by the width of the screen. Especially after
    entering all these Items and have to change the price on those. I need
    to scroll from left to right to make sure I have the correct item.
  2. Tabbing is not very intuitive like in a spreadsheet. I have to use
    the mouse and keyboard at the same time.
  3. When searching for an Item, I should be able to start typing a word
    and it should start pulling all the items that i.e. start with white.
    This should be done without going to another screen.
  4. Another option would be that if I search for white and it brings
    several items that have white in it (white shoes, pants, shirt)that by
    just clicking on the Items or placing a check mark, all items that are
    checked or clicked should be carried into this Quote or SO.

This will make entering items a lot easier and more intuitive.

Thanks,

Turk

This is true and I guess the developers are working on it, maybe a developer should answer this part

This thing is already there in the system, if you have items like White Shoes, White Pants etc then if you type white the system automatically shows White Shoes, White Pants and other starting with white but it would not show Shirt White.

Currently when we type white and get like 10 options then we are able to select only one of those items, I think it would be a good addition to the system for a multiple select of those 10 items and the items are populated in the SO. Good idea, but I don’t know if this kind of functionality can come to the system soon.

have you tried working around with the % percentage sign ?? in the search box

%white%shoes, just that the chornological order could be same as the item id / description whichever you chose.

currently I am satisfied with the item table and data insertion method. Just one thing on wishlist…


for the item table : we have > del , ins, up , down… only if one more option is added “copy” so that it can copy earlier row and then simple changes in itemcode & get things done smartly - speedily. Please let me if such a feature is required by anybody else.
