When entering data into the date fields in SAP Business One, many people take the time to manually type in the complete date. If you're entering a long list of documents, this can be cumbersome and takes more time that it needs to.
SAP Business One includes date field handy shortcuts that you can use to save yourself time on data entry.
- To enter a date in the current month: Enter the 2-digit day (e.g. 15), then hit Tab on your keyboard. The current month and year will auto-populate.
- To enter a date in a different month: Enter the 2-digit month, the 2-digit day (e.g. 0315), then hit Tab on your keyboard. The current year will auto-populate.
- To enter today's date: Enter any letter on your keyboard, then hit Tab. The current date will auto-populate.
