Finding a customer by first name

Problem: Customer wants to search Management database by first name.

Versions Affected:

Manager/Manager Plus, Shopkey Service Writer/Management (all versions).


The Management program doesn’t have a box for first name, only last name. However there is a workaround.

1. Open the one start window:

2. On the name box, type a comma and the first name of the customer you’re looking for, even just the

first letters; no spaces between the comma and the name.
