Create QuickLists

You can create two kinds of QuickLists in TOTAL: single-field QuickLists and multi-field QuickLists.

 


Create single-field QuickLists

To create a single-field QuickList entry:

  1. In the Forms PowerView, place your cursor in the field you wish to create a QuickList, and type the text exactly the way you want to save it.
  2. Double-click New in the QuickList pane or press Ctrl+F9.

      NOTE:

    You cannot edit TOTAL's pre-built stock QuickLists. If you do not see the New option in your QuickLists, you will first need to switch to your own custom set of QuickLists.

  3. Type a name for this entry and click OK.

Your comment is added to the QuickList for this field. Now, whenever you enter this field, the comment you saved appears in the QuickLists pane on the left.

 


Create multi-field QuickLists

While single-field QuickLists can help you quickly get through a section in your report, you can often speed that process further by creating multi-field QuickList entries that detail every field in a section for a certain builder or neighborhood. To create a multi-field QuickList entry:

  1. From the Forms PowerView, select all of the fields you want to add into your QuickList entry starting with the field into which you want to add this QuickList.  To select multiple fields, either hold down the Ctrl key and click each individual field you want to add or hold down the Shift key and click the first and last fields in a section of contiguous fields to select the entire section.
  2. Double-click New in QuickList pane or press Ctrl+F9.

      NOTE:

    You cannot edit TOTAL's pre-built stock QuickLists. If you do not see the New option in your QuickLists, you will first need to switch to your own custom set of QuickLists.

  3. Type a name for this entry and click OK.

Your new QuickList entry then appears in the QuickLists pane for the top-most field you selected.
