Account Alias use to speed up GL Transaction Entry. In above Example “LI-A” alias assigned to Life Insurance - Administration, instead of typing whole Account No user can use Alisa to speed up Journal General Entry (Transactions-->Financial-->General) .
Click on arrow to open Account Entry window Type “LI-A” in Alias field and press tab, as soon as user press tab Alias will recognized Account Number and display same in Transaction Entry screen.
Very small but interesting feature , have you ever used Alias feature before ?
PS: Use Alias feature not only for General Transaction but for entering big Distributions in other Transactions.
