One of the many benefits to using software that is web-based is that you do all your work in an internet browser and internet browsers are pretty flexible. There are lots of them to choose from and most of them have a pretty extensive list of features.
For me, I prefer Google Chrome. It’s fast (this is the most important feature), all my bookmarks and browsing history sync with the Chrome app on my iPhone, it’s minimalistic design makes more room for viewing webpages, it has one field for typing in a website or doing a Google search, etc. One of the features that is also prevalent in most major browsers (including Chrome) is the ability to do tabbed browsing.
Now, since Acumatica runs within Google Chrome for me, I can take advantage of tabbed browsing in Acumatica.
Right-click on a tab and choose Duplicate to make a copy of your tab to another tab. Some ERP systems don’t even allow you to have the same screen open more than once. With Acumatica, you can duplicate a screen as many times as you want. Maybe you need to run the same report for five different customers. You can quickly duplicate the report screen five times and then run each report simultaneously rather than waiting for each report to finish before starting the next.
Open in new tab
Drag to new window
If your Google Chrome browsing window is getting too cluttered, you can drag a tab to a new window. Just hold down the left mouse button and drag your desired tab down. You will see the window turn into a funny see-through window. Once you let go of the left mouse button, the window will become its own standalone window on the bottom of your screen. You can use this method to group similar screens together.
You can hold down Ctrl on your keyboard and press the Tab key to alternate between Google Chrome tabbed windows. Of course, holding down Alt and pressing Tab will move you through each window, such as Journal Transactions and Invoices and Memos in the screenshot above. But Ctrl -> Tab will move you between tabs that are within the same window.
