6.Name the list by entering a short description in the field which displays List1 at the bottom of the screen. You will see the list name change in the Nav Tree as well.

7.Pin the list by selecting the Pin icon at the top right of the list screen. Once pinned, run the list again to save the data in the pinned list.



When you have a single card file open, right click on the card file in the Nav Tree to take a prepayment or give a refund on a prepayment or return. This is a very quick way to bring up the Payment or Refund screen for that client/vendor instead of having to go to Debtors or Creditors.
