If you are like most people, you're always looking for ways to save time, even with your Sage Abra HRMS software. Sage Abra Suite v9 keyboard shortcuts could be your new best friend when it comes to time management. As you may already know Abra Suite v9 has many new features and enhancements. Among other things are the Updated User Interface, Advanced Employee Find, Navigation Pane, the new Icons, and the new Shortcut Keys.
What are Shortcut keys in Sage Abra Suite?
Sage Abra Suite is designed to be used with a mouse pointing device. By using the mouse, it is easier to point to and select fields and buttons on the page. However, in some situations, you might find it easier to use your keyboard. Sage Abra Suite adheres to the Microsoft Windows standard for mouse-equivalent keystrokes.
Instead of using the mouse, you can use the keyboard to access and select items from the Main Menu. For instance, if you want to access the insurance benefits details for an employee. You simply hold down Ctrl + I instead of clicking on Details > HR > Insurance Benefits. This shortcut eliminates several mouse-equivalent keystrokes.
Note: The list of shortcut keys might be different for a customized system or if you do not have access to every page. The updated shortcut keys are available as of Abra Suite v9.0.
Accessing the Main Menu
Instead of using the mouse, you can use the keyboard to access and select items from the Main Menu. For instance, instead of clicking on Analysis, you can hold down Alt and press N. To access Processes, hold down Alt and press P. The underlined letter in each menu category indicates the letter to press to select the menu category.
After you have selected a Main Menu item, you can use the keyboard to do one of the following:
- Press the down arrow to navigate to the other options for the selected menu item.
- Press the right arrow to highlight the next menu category.
- Press one of the underlined letters to display the corresponding drop-down menu.
- Press Enter to open the selected menu item.
- Press Esc to cancel your action and return to the task on which you were working
You can use the keyboard shortcuts to open pages and move from one page to another.
Note: The list of shortcut keys might be different for a customized system or if you do not have access to every page.
Note: Press Ctrl + U on the Logon page if you want to update system files before logging on to Sage Abra Suite.
