We’re here to discuss one of the new features of the new QuickBooks Point of Sale v.12 that was brought back by popular demand: Multi-Tasking!
In previous versions of the software, various forms of multi-tasking were available, but were severely limited and not particularly useful to most situations. In the new v.12, however, they have revamped this feature, making it a powerful and useful tool in the everyday retail world.
Now, there are three methods of switching between open windows within the Point of Sale software:
- Windows Pull-Down Tab: next to the Home button in the top left-hand side of the screen.
- Windows Menu Tab: between the Reports and Help tabs across the top of the screen.
- Ctl+Tab: allows you to toggle between open windows.
Selecting either the pull-down tab or the menu tab will display a list of all open windows, allowing you to select the desired window without having to scroll through, like with the Ctl+Tab option.
Overall, this is now a much more powerful feature, and we think all of our retailers will really enjoy being able to switch over to create sales receipts as customers walk up, without having to close reports you may be running in the background, or purchasing orders you may be creating.
