December 17, 2009       Version 6.7.9g
1. Case Activity and Scan shortcut / quick entry selections

If there are commonly used phrases that you type all the time in case activity or the ScanFiles Module then you can set up defaults so as to click rather than have to always type those phrases.

Click Tools, System, Configure system defaults, Scan Settings, Dropdowns to set the defaults for "Quick Entry Clicks" for case activity and the ScanFiles Service Module

You might want to first click the Case Activity (on the left) at System Defaults to quickly find a category number then click Scan Settings (at the far bottom left) and then click the Dropdowns button.
