      Did You Know?

      CMPOnline has all kinds of hidden secrets!

      Users can add frequently accessed screens to their “Favorites” menu for easy, one-click access. Simply visit the page you wish to favorite and click the star in the top menu bar. This comes in handy for screens that are deep within CMP that users wish to access quickly and easily.

      (Windows Only) In addition, you can also use keyboard shortcuts to access your favorite screens or save items within CMP. For example, to access the first item in your Favorites list, press Alt-1 at the same time and you will instantly jump to the screen. Pressing Alt-S with a popup open will save the contents of that popup. If you press Alt-S while on a Case File screen, it will save the case file.
