Slips Summary

Updated: 2021-08-10

In the slips modules, use the Slips summary for easy navigation and review. This is especially useful if you have a file with many slips in it.

Customizing Columns

  1. When you scroll through the list of slips, the column headings stay fixed at the top of the table.
  2. Click on a column heading to perform an ascending sort (from A to Z, or the smallest number to the largest). Click again to perform a descending sort (from Z to A, or largest number to smallest).
  3. Drag and drop a column heading to move the column to a different position.

  7. Right-click on a column heading and select Manage columns to add or remove columns from the summary and change the order in which columns appear.

  3. Double-click the first or last name of a recipient to jump to the slip.
