Best Tally Shortcuts that you should use to save time

Tally Prime: What Is It?

The business accounting programme Tally Prime was created by the multinational Indian corporation Tally Solutions Private Limited. It is the most recent version of Tally, a programme used for accounting, payroll, banking, and tax purposes as well as inventory management and accounting. Tally Prime is intended to make complicated accounting activities simple and to assist companies in effectively managing their financial records and transactions.

Invoicing, purchase order management, GST compliance, multi-currency support, budgeting and forecasting, among other features and functions, are all available with Tally Prime. Small, medium-sized, and big businesses in a range of sectors, including manufacturing, commerce, retail, and services, utilise it. Tally Prime can be tailored to a business’s unique requirements and is available in a variety of languages.

There are a few tips and tactics to keep in mind when using Tally Prime to help you operate more quickly and efficiently. In order to make your experience with Tally Prime easier, we have included a few of them:

Go To Feature

You can instantly reach any report or Tally Prime feature you wish to utilise by using the Go To option in the top menu. Every screen accessed using Go To will open on the top of your current screen, and dismissing the screen will return you to the previous screen.

Pressing Ctrl+G while working anywhere can instantly do this.

For example: If you want to quickly view your Balance Sheet while dealing with vouchers, simply press Ctrl+G and choose Balance Sheet to appear. If you then hit escape, you will return to the previous voucher you were working on. This saves you both time and effort.

Switch To Feature

If you need to check the Day Book or make a Voucher using the Gateway of Tally choices, you will need to press Esc four times to get to the Gateway of Tally. Finally, select Day Book or Vouchers > Create.

Alternatively, use Ctrl+G and then select Day Book or vouchers to swap your screen. When you use the Escape key, you will be sent to the Gateway of Tally rather than the page you were previously working on.

Altering the Ledger

Go to Gateway of Tally > Accounts Info > Ledgers > Alter > Press Alt+D (if you want to delete the voucher). This is the casual way to alter ledger in Tally Prime. Isn’t it too long to carry on.

Alternatively, while working in vouchers, just press Ctrl+Enter while maintaining the pointer over the ledger you want to alter and then alter the ledger. To remove the ledger, hit the Alt+ D key.

Hiding the Entry in Day Book

There is always a chance that you could need to hide any of your Day Book entries for any important purpose at some point. It only takes 2 steps to complete this:

Step1: Choose the vouchers or entries you wish to hide.

Step2: Press Ctrl+R.

Selected Entries will instantly disappear.To Unhide:

After choosing the entries you wish to make visible again, Press Ctrl+U.

Selecting all Entries of the Day Book

Rather than holding the Shift and Arrow keys for an extended period of time, you can use Ctrl+Space to select and deselect all of the entries in the Day Book in one go.

Jump Straight to the Day Book’s End or Start

Use Ctrl + End and Ctrl + Home to go directly to the end and the beginning of the day book, respectively, instead of repeatedly clicking Enter.

Detailed Day Book

It can be hard to get a thorough understanding of the entries displayed in a Day Book. But, we can access this by just pressing Alt+F1. This will show you a thorough Day Book.

Tally Vault Password Recovery

Using Ctrl+Alt+R will open the Tally.exe programme, which will allow you to reset your TallyVault password if you’ve lost it. You can then input your email address to access the retrieval password at the recovery page after doing this.

Stock Summary

The Closing Balances of each item in the specified category are listed in the Stock Category Summary. Gateway to Tally > Display More Reports > Inventory Books > Stock Category Summary. Instead, use Alt+G (Go To) > type Stock Category Summary or choose it, then press Enter.
