Get to know the role centre

When you want to see, find and start your daily tasks, or find work that’s assigned to you, head straight to the Wiise landing page. This is called the role centre in Wiise – it’s the first screen you’ll see when you log in.  

  • At the top, you can switch between customers, vendors, items, and other important lists of information. There are actions that let you start common tasks, like creating a new sales invoice for your customer 
  • In the centre, you’ll find Activities, with current data on things like ongoing sales that you can click on for a more detailed look 
  • You can set up KPIs for things like cash flow or income and expenses 
  • You can also build up a list of your favourite customers and reports. 

How to find what you need to get started 

There are a few ways to get to what you need in the role centre: you can use the drop-down feature menus at the top of the page.

1. Select from the lists, such as Customers or Vendors.

2. Or select the action you want, like + Sales Invoice or + Purchase Order to create new documents. 


Finding your way around Wiise

How to organise your lists to find what you need more easily 

If you have a long list of customers, you can sort them by things like Customer No. or Country Region Code to make it easier to get a quick overview of the data. You’ll be able to sort different lists of data by any of their column headings. 

Select the column you want to sort and select the drop-down arrow in the column heading. Then select Ascending or Descending

How to reduce the number of results on your lists using the filter 

Filtering is especially helpful when you’re viewing and analysing longer documents. Maybe you want to filter the line items in a posted sales invoice to display all those that have a discount above 5%. You might want to see bike accessories with 'pro' in the name. Or maybe you only want to see customers from NSW in your list. You can set a filter using the filter pane to do this.  

  • Select the drop-down arrow next to the name of the page or list, and then select the Show filter pane or Filter action. Or just press Shift+F3.  

In the filter pane you can see the current filters for a list and set your own filters – just select the + Filter action. Then you can set and save different views; add filters to certain fields to reduce the number of records in the list; and filter your totals by section.

How to use filtering to widen your search

Need to look for orders from a particular customer but not sure how to spell their name? Or perhaps you’re looking for orders made between two dates? You can adjust filtering and widen your search by using these powerful characters: 

  • @man shows text that matches man and isn’t case-sensitive 
  • Hans?n looks for text such as Hansen or Hanson 
  • ‘man’ looks for an exact character match 
  • *co* looks for text that contains ‘Co’ and is case-sensitive 
  •  <>0 looks for all numbers except 0 
  • 1200 | 1300 looks for numbers with 1200 or 1300 
  • 22..24 looks for the dates from the 22nd to 24th of the current month;  
  • P8 looks for information for and from accounting period 8   

How to filter your data to find what you need

Whether you’re looking for purchase orders for one vendor, looking for customers in just one state, or searching your items list, filtering can help you find what you need, fast. Below are some more keyboard shortcuts to help you use filtering to sort through data quickly: 

  • To filter on a cell value to see a list of all customers in WA for example, select Alt+F3 
  • To open the filter pane to select or set a new filter, select Ctrl+Shift+F3  
  • Set a manual filter to search for a certain company name for example, by selecting F3 
  • Ctrl+Enter will take you out of the filter pane back to your list  
  • Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F3 will reset your filters 
  • Ctrl+End will take you to the end of the list 
  • Ctrl+home will take you to the start of the list
