How QAD adapts to your needs
Custom Browses
You can easily modify standard browses, but what if you want to create your own version of a browse, perhaps with additional fields.
You can start from scratch or use an existing browse as a start. Take a copy of the Customer Browse and redesign it.
Perhaps you would like to set up a browse that will show you all of your Wholesale customers, their credit limit and credit terms. To do this, you will need to add fields to this browse, remove unneeded items, and filter to select just Wholesalers.
Once you are done, you can run the browse from here - optionally exporting to an Excel file, generating a PDF, or printing a report. In addition, if you would like to run this regularly, you can add it to the menu and share it with others. It is just that easy!
