Reducing the number of clicks on daily task can wind up significantly optimizing workflows in the Cetaris Fleet and Cetaris Fixed Asset application. To help you save minutes per task, we've compiled a list of our team's favorite shortcuts. Note that many of these tips apply to versions earlier than 8.0 as well.

Keyboard shortcuts

Esc: Close the current tab.

F10: Load the Message screen.

F2: Load Translation UI.

Alt + M: Open the Menu from any screen. 
Alt + M + underlined letter.  Type Alt + M + the underlined letter in the menu to open that item quickly.

  • Alt + M + A (Add Equipment)
  • Alt + M + W (Add a Work Order for Equipment)
  • Alt + M + C (Change Meter Type)

Search bar shortcuts

Did you know that in Cetaris Fleet and Cetaris Fixed Asset your friendly little search bar can be used to type quick commands to open relevant records without searching through the explorer?

To open the Search Direct screen from the search bar type the following:

To add a record from the search bar type the following:
