Hey Guys, Tony here from CartonCloud with Tony's Tips.

Actually I will admit this isn't one of my tips. Now, I'm not a developer, I'm an operations guy.

All I've ever done is transport and warehousing, so in my line of work, you know, on a computer if I see a screen with a whole heap of buttons, and I'll just explain to you what I'm talking about.

If I got to transport, and I go to consignment areas for instance, if we have a look here there's 20 odd consignments on this page.

What happened originally, is I come in, and I go, "I want to select them all." So I just started clicking them all, and one of the developers goes, "What are you doing?" And I looked sort of a bit dumb founded, and went, "I'm selecting them." Okay, there's no 'select all' button here.

And he said to me, "Well let me show you a trick. Click the first one with your mouse, hold down shift, click the last one," and they all selected.

And all the developers sat around in their development room all snickering away, and I felt like a bit of a dill. Then I went and spoke to our marketing guy and went, "Oh my God," and he went, "Oh my God, I did exactly the same thing."

Now the amount of times I tell people how it works, and look, we're logistics people. We don't do computers, we just do transport. But anyway, so that there is a little trick, which I thought was, you know, so simple, but it is extremely helpful.

So yeah, like I say. You press the top one, hold down shift, click the other one, and that will come on, or it will all go off.

Anyway, just another one of Tony's tips. And yes, I felt like a right dill.
