Tip #078.1 – Search for a Recipient (Rev. #1)

Tip #078
Search for a Recipient (Revision #1)
(As suggested by Chris of Owens Flowershop in Lawrence, KS)

(To see the deleted portions of this post, see the original Tip #078 post)

Another way flowerSoft helps you search for a recipient is by pressing the F4 key from the “Deliver To” field and display a list of recipient’s the customer has sent flowers to in the past.

We have recently added the option of pressing the F6 key after you’ve typed the first name of the recipient to search flowerSoft’s database of previously delivered to names.

As you type, flowerSoft will move the highlight bar to show the closest match to what you have typed.  This is similar to what is called auto-complete.

Entering the first name before pressing the F6 is not absolutely necessary but it helps narrow down the search. After you press the F6 key, flowerSoft opens a window showing the closest matching names.

Here is Chris’ excellent suggestion.

She asked if it was possible to show the last delivery date on this window, so that if the recipient has moved it will be easier to determine which is the most recent address.

This is how flowerSoft gets better each day, by users like you offering great suggestions like the one Chris just offered.

Thank you, Chris!
