Tip #1: Go To Date

This one is found in Intellect, Time & Chaos, and Chaos Free.

Why use it? If you are trying to go to a date that is far away, don’t click the next year over and over and over. Just use this Go To Date feature and type in the date you want to be taken directly there. Even better, what if you have something that needs to happen in 90 days from now or needs to happen 90 days before a specific deadline? Go To Date is for you!

There are two ways to trigger the Go To Date. One method is to right click anywhere in the navigation calendar(s) on the left side of our screen. The other is to click on a date in the nav calendar, then press CTRL-G on your keyboard. Either way, you’ll get a popup that says “Enter a date or a numeric value”.

Enter a date like 4/1/2016 if you know the exact date you want to move to. You can also put in +90 or -90 and the calendar will jump to exactly 90 days after (+) or before (-) the currently selected date. You even have options for other time periods than days to jump by years, months, weeks, or weekdays, if need be.
