Did you know that Tally.ERP 9 has powerful shortcuts to let you have a faster and smoother experience while passing transactions? Now, you can boost your productivity and spare more time for your business.

What would you do when you open your voucher screen and find that the required ledgers or stock items have not been created yet? This kind of situation generally forces users to come out of the voucher creation screen and navigate through the menu to complete the requirements. Wouldn’t it be much easier if you could do this directly from your current screen by using a few key combinations? This is where the Shortcut keys in Tally.ERP 9 come in to help you experience a faster transaction entry process. These must-try shortcut keys can be used while creating or altering vouchers and also while viewing reports that show transactions.

Power Shortcuts for Voucher Creation and Alteration Screen
