Standard answers

The Standard answers index is a list of common responses you repeat many times to fill data entry fields with text, such as dates, bank names, government department names and so on.

    How to retrieve the Standard answer you want

    Over time your list of answers may become long. So that you obtain maximum benefit and to simplify locating the entry you want, use distinctive codes to categorise your Standard answers. For instance, prefix each code for a bank with the letter B, Superfunds with S, charities with C and so on.

    To locate answers in the list, type the first letter of the code required. The first Standard answer prefixed by that letter appears.
