Medicine shortcuts can be created to allow for quicker medicine selection in the Dispensary program. These can be set up in the Edit Medicine screen which is accessible via two methods: 

  • Main menu, 2 – Stock Control, 4 – Maintain Medicine
  • Main menu, 1 – Prescriptions, F7 – Med

Under the Miscellaneous heading, enter a value for Shortcut – these must be at least 3 characters long.


Shortcut Selection by Generic Name

In Edit Medicine, set a shortcut code.  If this is entered using lowercase characters, then use of the shortcut will ensure that this medicine is always selected as its generic name.
