Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Workpapers CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET.

Transaction templates contain information that the application can recall and automatically enter in new transactions that are created from the template. This saves you time during data entry and helps prevent data-entry errors because some of the information is already entered for you.

The on demand templates that you create in this screen are available for selection in the Actions > Enter Transactions screen for journal entry transactions.

Choose Setup > Transaction Templates.
