A Change in Priority

Last week, we discussed making a duplicate of an alarm system registration.  Another option found by right clicking the tabs in an account is the ability to reorder the keyholder/emergency contacts.  To get there, right click on any of the tabs and scroll down to the "Reorder Accounts" option.
This opens a "Reorder Persons" window that lists the keyholders for the account and shows their current priority order.
To change the order, simply click in the "new" column and assign the new order numerically.  When finished, click OK and the changes will be made when you click the Update button.
If you have any creative uses for these options, please share in the comments so that others can benefit from your knowledge.
