The F7 key works MAGIC in Dynamics SL

A great short-cut that you may not know about is the F7 key when in any date field in Dynamics SL. If you press F7 when in the date field - the field will populate with today's date, eliminating key strokes.

Also, check out other "short-cut" keys as part of the "edit" menu from the tool bar.
