Jim2® Business Engine Help File

Throughout Jim2 many of the words beside fields shown on forms are actually hidden hyperlinks that can open another form (often signified by an underlined letter in the word). On a quote, for example, hover over the word Cust# beside its field and it will change to a blue underlined hyperlink.

Hover over the wording

Wording changes to blue and underlined

 

Left click on this link to View CardFile, View Debtor, Create List, etc. See below for information on what can be seen when hovering over these hyperlinks in different objects.

 

hyperlink hover

 

To go back to the original object (which is underneath), close the current object.

 

This is the manner in which these hyperlinks work for most forms within Jim2. The important thing to understand is, unlike most hyperlinks, the hyperlinks on Jim2 forms appear to be normal text until the cursor hovers over it – although many will have a faint underline beneath the text. It is only when hovering over the field that the hyperlink will actually appear.
