The changes of shortcuts make the experienced to fresher. Comparing from Tally 5.4 up to Tally Prime, the knowledge form earlier version have zero reaching at Tally Prime. Although, tally prime provides more option but it seams so complicacy. In my opinion Tally is famous only for its double entry system but using Tally Prime feels like work with an user define software. The conclusion is that there is no progress for a tally user’s knowledge at Tally Prime. As the name changed the feature changed.
