System Shortcuts

System Shortcuts

Here in the Aladtec Support department, we love finding faster and more efficient ways to accomplish tasks in the system. Some of the shortcuts we use are simple but not very obvious.  Here are a few you must have in your arsenal.

Multiple Tabs or Monitors

Don’t be limited to only working in one tab or monitor with the Aladtec System. To open a new tab, hold the Ctrl key and click a link.  Multiple tabs and monitors make it easy for viewing two or more areas of the system.  You can also drag this additional tab to your second monitor for viewing.

Don’t forget to refresh the page if you make a change on one screen and verify those changes on another screen (you can use F5 to refresh a page).

External Links

In addition to Aladtec, are there other systems you access throughout the day?  If so, use our External Link option to provide a shortcut to those systems from your Aladtec system. Add the web addresses in Setup – External Links, then easily click on those links in a drop-down from your company name in the upper left corner.

Change Time Types

Changing the Time Type associated with a shift can be done very quickly in the Hourly Editor.  There is no need to delete the shift and re-add it.  To change a Time Type on a shift, hover over and click the three lines (hamburger icon) next to the member’s name in Hourly Editor. Note: This only applies to systems with Time Types Enabled.

View Full or Mobile Site Screen

Remember you can select either version you wish to view, whether you are on your mobile device or on a desktop. At the bottom of your screen, you can toggle between the mobile or full site version.For questions or assistance with these tips, please contact the Support Team at or 888.749.5550. As always, thank you for using Aladtec!
