Invoicing + speedy dates shortcuts

By Nora Tucker

0 min read

At Intuit, we know that time is money for small businesses so you need to get things fast (and this is something Aussie small businesses tell us we’re great at by the way!)

But here’s the small biz paradox: everyone likes sending invoices, but no one likes creating them. To help make the whole thing faster, we’ve made invoicing super-simple plus we’ve created time-saving shortcuts. For example, say you want to enter a new invoice…

1Click Create (+) at the top of the screen and select Invoice.

2Click or tab to the Invoice date field.

Press the t key to automatically enter today’s date. (Try it, it’s such a time saver!)

Here’s a full list of keyboard shortcuts for dates:

  • t: today

  • + (plus key): tomorrow

  • – (minus key): yesterday

  • w: first day of week

  • k: last day of week

  • m: first day of month

  • h: last day of month

  • y: first day of year

  • r: last day of year

  • 6/21: 06/21 of current year

3You can also press the Down arrow key to display a pop-up calendar.quickbooks-shortcuts-dates-3
