You can choose up to eight dimensions whose values you can enter directly on journals or sales/purchase lines. These are called shortcut dimensions.
Open the General Ledger Setup window.
On the Dimensions tab, in the Shortcut Dimension 3 Code field, click the AssistButton and select a dimension. Click OK to copy the code to the field.
Repeat the procedure for Shortcut Dimension 4-8 Code fields.
The Shortcut Dimension 1 Code and Shortcut Dimension 2 Code are the same as the Global Dimension 1 Code and Global Dimension 2 Code and are, therefore, already filled out.
The dimensions you choose for shortcut dimensions should be the dimensions you most often enter manually.
