Understanding the Selection Tool

The selection tool is in many Enterprise windows and wizards. The selection tool shows a list of line items from the same category (e.g. products, division, customers, etc.) to select for an action, transaction, or filter criteria. The line items you select determine the data the system pulls. The top pane is the Unassigned or Unselected pane and the pane below the top pane is the Assigned or Selected pane. This article refers to both the:

  • Unassigned and Unselected pane as the Unassigned pane
  • Assigned and Selected pane as the Assigned pane
  • Add All and Select All buttons as the Select All button
  • Add and Select buttons as the Select button

Using the Selection Tool Efficiently

Some windows present the selection tool with all line items in the Assigned pane or the Unassigned pane. Selecting and moving individual line items can be tedious. Use the Remove All button, Add All button, or select multiple line items to speed up the selection process. E.g. If all line items are in the Assigned pane and you only require two line items in the Assigned pane, Click Remove All and Filter & Select the required line items.
