Creating Template Vouchers - 10a

Purpose:  Improve data entry efficiency by creating template vouchers using ctcLink.

Audience: Accounts Payable staff.

If you receive multiple similar vouchers from a supplier, you can set up a Template Voucher to improve data entry efficiency. You can use a voucher for a particular supplier as a model for other vouchers that you will enter in the future for that supplier by creating a template voucher. Creating a template voucher saves you lots of keystrokes. A template voucher is never paid or posted. It is a model for other vouchers. After you create and save the template voucher, it is available for use during the entry of other vouchers for the specific supplier.
