Helpful Account Search Tips

One of the great features of CryWolf® is the hints and tips that are available right in the software.  Going other places to get information and help is nice (and I do appreciate that you are stopping by my little blog), but don’t neglect the helps that are available right on your desktop.  For example, when you click the “Search” box to find an account (red arrow below),the “Search Options” pop up window opens.

Two oft overlooked buttons in this window are the “Options” button (pink circle below) and the “Instructions” button (aqua circle below).
When the options button is clicked, the additional search options of “Where” to search and “Type” of search appear.  As shown below, the “where” (brown box) option allows the user to search the “Main Account”, the “Responsible Party”, and “All Related Records”.  The “type” search (green box) allows a default, Soundex, or MetaPhone search.  (The Soundex or MetaPhone searches allow searches based on what a name sounds like in English, and are quite helpful in finding foreign names).

When the Search Instructions box (aqua box below) is clicked, a helpful “Search Instructions” window opens.  
The “Search Instructions” window lists six ways to craft a search to find the information that you need.  These search tips can be used to enhance your internet searches also.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope that this tip will help as you search your way through the data in CryWolf®.

Can we Talk about Packaging?

Today, many people (myself included) use ancient chain maille armor techniques to create jewelry. Basically, artisans take small rings made of wire and weave them together in intricate designs. In this way, the ancient weaves are re-imagined for a modern audience.

     Although some people take raw wire and create their own rings, many rely on retailers for their needs. From that need, a growing cottage industry has sprung up to supply makers with kits that include all of the rings and instructions for a design. Most of these businesses use very simple packaging for their products. Zipper seal bags with simple printed labels are very common.

     For companies that are a little larger, heat seal plastic tubing becomes the most common form of packaging. There is one operation that packages per order so that the rings come in a long, unlabeled, sausage-like strip of tubing with a heat seal between each type of ring. Customers must match the segment of the tube to the invoice to figu…

Ferret Friday #3

We have discovered that our ferret is an addict.  There is one thing that he loves most in this world, and  I am sure that you would never guess what it is.  We don't even know how he first discovered it, but all it took was leaving the kitchen pantry door open one time.  What is this crack for ferrets you ask?  Coffee Mate French Vanilla creamer in those cute little individual cups (and if you dare to follow the link, the comments make me think our ferrets isn't the only one that is addicted).

I am sure that it started out innocently enough.  The tabs on the little cups are probably perfect for ferret teeth to grip.  The weight is probably a satisfying heft without being too heavy. The cups are small, portable, and easily hidden. And hide them he did.  But then, a tooth may have accidentally slipped through the foil and released the contents and a new discovery was made.  I am sure that he thought "Wow...a treasure and a treat."  Since his first taste, he has been t…

Ferret Friday #16 - Pantry Raid

After several months of not having Coffee Mate in the house due to A. E.'s addiction, I felt sorry for the Hubster and purchased a box.  It didn't take long for the A. E. to "ferret" it out.  I caught him in the act as he was investigating the pantry on his way to the "crack".
