Data entry is often very tedious.

When entering the date I did something (like accessed data), it is almost always TODAY. So, Let's have a button labeled "TODAY" for those date fields. Reduces keystrokes and eliminates typos.

Other fields get the same data as I just entered a minute ago. Perhaps a display of the previously entered data for that field and a button by that display labeled something like "USE THIS"

Legacy Family Tree has had this capability for quite a while.

Legacy Family Tree has also had this capability for quite a while. It has a Repeat button that fills in the field where the cursor is placed with the data that was most recently typed in the same field in another record.
