Hello Everyone,

Can we change the Sales Order screen tab sequence order without changing the UI fields order?

Currently, in the Sales Order screen when we click on the tabs, the sequence will be..

Order Type → Order Nbr → Date → Requested On → Customer Order Nbr and etc

We would like to this change to below sequence

Order Type → Customer → Order Nbr → Location → Date and etc


Can anyone help me with this?

In the Screen Editor /Layout Properties tab, you can set the TabIndex property, with a numeric value,  for the controls that you want to change tab key behavior.

@astrauss80 Can we have this feature for Grid (Document Details) as well?

I have checked for the Document Details grid in the Sales Order screen (SO301000), but the “Tab Index” property is NOT available.

By simply changing the order of the columns (using the column configuration or manually moving the columns), it changes the tab order on a user by user basis.

These default column configurations can be applied to multiple users by clicking Tools » Share Column Configuration.

Another option is you can change the default order of the fields using the screen editor within a customization package and for the document details grid fields, drag and drop the fields in the order you would like.
