Direction Message Keys
Once a TINS screen is displayed, you can navigate using the function keys displayed at the bottom of each screen.
- These direction message keys may allow you to page forward, return to a previous menu or exit that screen.
- Some keyboards may require you to press alternate keys or a combination of keys to accomplish a function.
- The function keys may change from screen to screen.
- When a function is not displayed, it is not available for that screen.
TINS may also display information, warning or error messages at the bottom of each screen. The online error messages are self-explanatory and require that corrections be made before the transactions process.
