Tip # 2 - Using = to Tell Colleague to do it Your Way
Last updated: March 23, 2018
Have you ever entered data into Colleague and had the system change what you typed into upper or lower case? Colleague tries to be helpful, but sometimes that is not the way you want that particular name or piece of data to look! This happens most frequently with names, addresses and code descriptions. If you enter the equals sign immediately followed by your desired text (without a space between them), Colleague will not attempt to change what you typed. For example, if you want Colleague to leave the last name VanSpike alone (instead of changing it to Vanspike - with a lower-case "s") you would enter:
directly into the last name field.
