Intelligent Lists Function

The intelligent lists is a function in the Cash book that uses the data you have entered previously for company to guess what codes, enterprises & allocations you will need when entering transactions.

This function can save you a lot of time when entering transaction data and can be combined with the recent function to save you even more time.

The function works best when there is a reasonable amount of data in a file – it may be of limited use if you have only recently started using the program. With 3 months' of data, the intelligent list will start to be helpful.

The function is off by default. To turn it on:
