Page Menu

The page menu is not displayed when a List of records or transactions is on screen or the item is very limited for the amount of data that is required to be stored. 

An example would be when an Inventory Class is being Looked at, Modified or Created New. In the screen shot below the page menu is not required so it is not displayed on the main toolbar.

Because of the complexities of some functions there is a requirement to have more than one page of data entry fields for the function.

When we execute a Client Inquiry by highlighting and then electing to Look at or Modify a Client there are additional screens or pages available, so the Page menu is now displayed on the left hand side of the main SapphireOne toolbar enabling you to select these additional screens or pages. 

For other functions within SapphireOne the individual items on the Page menu will alter as required. Foe the first two, Details and More Details will be displayed in a majority of records and transactions.

Note that when using the Page menu, you do not close most of these additional Pages or screens, to get to another Page or screen. Step through them by clicking on the Page menu and then making your new selection directly from the page drop down menu. 

However, a number of the items on the menu open as a pop up screen with the original page still visible in the background and active if selected. In this case you may close the newly opened pop up screen in the normal manner. 

This pop up must be closed by selecting either the Close button appropriate to the operating platform as required.
