Data Entry with Extended Clipboard

Say we need to copy 2 students data to different to¬†10 different sites. And each student’s data contains, say 9¬†attributes – first name, last name, dob, gender, class, username, email, phone and address.

Old Techniques

So, what we usually do is to first copy name of 1st student and paste it to all 10 sites and then come back to take email of 1st student and go to site again to copy email and so on… ahh!! how tedious it will be to going back and forth¬†so many times for just a single student.

The Extended Clipboard Technique

With the advanced technique of Extended Clipboard you just need to copy all 9 attributes of 1st student and then just paste them on all sites with actions as CTRL+V+1 for the first while CTRL+V+9 for the 9th attribute. And then repeat this for all students. Look, how easy it was.
