  • Log in to My Accounting Shortcuts at http://www.udel.edu/myacctshortcuts

  • Provide a Nickname to help you identify this chart of accounts. Nicknames may be a maximum of 10 characters. Examples are "supplies", "chemgrant", "miscwage", etc.

  • Provide the SpeedType to go with this nickname. Use the lookup, if necessary.

  • Click Next step and provide additional Chartfield information. The Account is required; all other Chartfields are optional.

  • Click Finish and submit to add this Nickname. Click Cancel to abandon adding.

  • You may add an unlimited amount of nicknames.

  • Use the Edit and Delete buttons to manage your Nicknames. Note that editing or deleting the Chartfields for a Nickname does not effect any forms on which that Nickname has already been used.

  • Click the Logout link in upper right to exit when done.

Then next time you login to a form that uses Nicknames, you will see your current Nicknames listed.
