Common Note Features
Note on/off
1. Note on/off
You can turn a note off without deleting its content by unchecking the box next to the note heading. To turn the note on in the future, just re-check the box. When a note is turned off, the content will not be exported to the T2 when you perform a GIFI export and any values that would normally transfer to the statements will no longer transfer. Subsequent notes will be renumbered.

Note number
2. Note number
Each note is automatically numbered. If the notes are sorted, deleted, turned off, or new notes added, then the note numbers and statement references will change accordingly.
The following options are available for the note numbers:
  • The note number will automatically print next to the note heading description if the note is turned on. You can choose to skip the note number from printing as part of the note heading. This can be useful for when you want to combine two notes.
    • Right-click on the blue note number and uncheck the Print Note Number option. The subsequent notes will be automatically renumbered.
  • Not only do you have the ability to jump to a note from the note number reference within the statements (refer to Changing or adding note number references in the statements), but you also have the option to jump from the note to the area where the note number is being referenced to.
  • Right-click and select the Goto Note Reference submenu to jump to any specific area in the Jazzit financial statements where this note was referenced. If the note has multiple references you'll be able to select each reference separately.
  • Select the Details... option, if there is more than one reference available, to see a preview of where each reference is linked.
  • Click on the Goto button on the right of the dialog to jump to the highlighted reference.
Note heading description
3. Note heading description
Use the popup menu to select an alternate note heading description or manually type in your own description into the input cell. On some notes, the note heading description changes will transfer to the statements. Refer to Behavior of notes summary to see which notes have this option.
Use the notes heading formatting options in the Notes menu to set the format of the notes headings (bold/unbold or uppercase/lowercase).

Delete/note options
9. Delete/note options
  • Left-click on this button to delete the current note. Jazzit will prompt you for a confirmation before the deletion is executed. This deletion cannot be undone.
  • Right-clicking on this button gives you additional note options as shown below:
  • Note ID: Indicates the note format inserted from the note category in the Resource Centre.
  • Version in FS: This indicates the current version of the note in the Jazzit financial statements. The delete line icon will change to a yellow status indicator () if the Resource Centre version is newer than the Jazzit financial statements version.
  • View the current Resource Centre version: This option will open the Resource Centre (KLIB) module that contains the note. This is useful when the preparer wants to see which alternative formats are available.
  • Update from the Resource Centre: When a note is flagged with the yellow status indicator () you'd want to update that note to bring in the latest version from the Resource Centre. For some notes you may be asked if you want to keep input cells and paragraphs. Select Yes or No depending on whether you have entered your own balances or wording. The new updated note will be copied into the Jazzit financial statements and the yellow status indicator () will revert back to the delete line icon. This option can also be used to reset the note to the default version in the Resource Centre. This is useful when you have made changes to the note but no longer wish to show the changes and instead opt to use the default note.
  • Get this note from another file: You can copy a note from an existing client file. This can be used in a scenario where you have created a specific note in another (source) client file, and you want to replicate that note in the current client file. Instead of creating the note from scratch, you can simply copy the note from the other (source) client file.
  • Jump to page: Allows you to navigate to a specific page selected from the submenu.
  • Help with note: Opens the Jazzit help file.
  • Delete this note: Deletes the note from the Jazzit financial statements.
