Tip #23 – The ‘Return’ Shortcut

Today I spent some time at a customer creating a new role center for Dynamics NAV CRM users.

One of the challenges we had was to create a My To-Do list on the Role Center that was based on the actual table. All went well until we started to test and compare to My Customers.

We could not get the double click on the lines to open the To-Do card.

So we started to ‘Find The Differences’ process. It is like playing the picture game with my kids.

Then, after trying out a few things we found this in the My Customer action properties…

Amazing isn’t it! Because return (hitting the Enter key) is the same as double clicking the line it works. [:P]

So now, let’s implement one of my favorite features.

Go to the General Ledger Entries page (20) and open the actions.

And make Navigate the default action!

So  now when I double click an entry it will Navigate.

Dear Microsoft, can you please implement this. [8-|]

Enjoy…

  1. Hi Mark,

    I use this option regularly but there are some limits. It works perfectly on lists and listparts. But for listparts, it only works when the listpart is in the FactBoxArea. When you put the same listpart in the ContentArea then this Return shortcut stops working.

    Try it out yourself: put the My To-do listpart that you created on normal Page and try it again.
