Function Keys in Ace Payroll

The function keys in Ace Payroll can be used from anywhere in the program, at any time.

The keys are especially useful to access features whilst processing a pay, or scanning employee details.

F1 Help - activates the help message associated with the current screen. If pressed when in that help message, this key then launches the Ace Payroll Help Manual, and opens the most logical page for the task at hand. More information on the F1 Help Manual is in an associated FAQ. image
image
F2 Employee Index - brings up the Employee Index, which you can use to view and sort your employee list. Clicking Setup gives further options. For employers with large payrolls, clicking Search allows you to search the list for a character string, rather than scrolling through the list.
