GoldMine : Using Time Abbreviations

Did you know that when Scheduling an item in GoldMine, you can use abbreviations in the "Time" field? For instance;

1. Select Schedule | Call from the top level menu.

2. In the "Time" field, try using the following abbreviations;

  - 8a is 8:00 a.m.
  - 4p is 4:00 p.m.
  - 700 is 7:00 a.m.
  - 1700 is 5:00 p.m.

Try it! A lot of folks use this approach versus using the Time control (opened by clicking on the grey arrow within the "Time" field).

Note: Those who are using GoldMine 8.x and above no longer need to struggle with the Time Control as was provided in earlier versions. You may simply drop down the "Time" field picklist and select your favorite time of day in half hour increments.
