Hi
Newbie here :)
Only been pat testing 1 year
just upgraded to apollo 500 ( taking a while to figure out how to use it lol )
and thought i'd take the plunge and get simplypats too - woo hoo

anyways is there a simple easy to read quick start, set-up guide about?

one that just tells you how to set up SP easily and configure it to what you want ?

I have figured out how to add a customer :D
and uploaded a couple of tests i did on the apollo 500

so am getting there slowly, have had a look thru the guides on here but can't seem to find a basic user manual any info pls and thanks :)

Steve

Hi Steve

Many thanks for your post. There isnt really a simple easy to read quick start, set-up guide

although I think it would be a really good idea for us to write one!

However if you go to the Help Menu and select Contents, the first three groups of topics

    Licencing and Setting Up SimplyPats
    Setting Up Your Company Information
    The Main Screen

Should take you in order of the first steps you need to do.

Remember there context sensitive help on each screen in SimplyPats, simply click on the Help button on each screen. There is over 200 pages of help in total so you can also use the search facility within the help system (see below)

There are also some FAQ's on the forum which may help you along the way. Those for SimplyPats 7

viewforum.php?f=64

and even those for the older version SimplyPats 6 may be of help.

viewforum.php?f=57

If you get stuck with anything, please dont hesitate to pick up the phone and give us a call during our office hours. We can guide you through or even demonstrate how to achieve what you want to by demoing SimplyPats on our PC or by taking control of yours.

Outside office hours please leave any questions on our forum. We try to monitor the forum periodically during evenings and weekends and respond when we can.

I will put on our to do list a Simple startup guide as I think this would be a very good idea for the future.

Regards, Richard.

Hi Steve

We did start releasing some FAQ / Guides for Version 6 which went through some of the features in detail but with our current development cycle we have not had as much time as we would have liked to write more guides or even better short videos.

This is certainly something that we are keen to do more of in the future, however there are a small collection of guides specific to Version 7 here viewforum.php?f=64

Also some of the Version 6 ones may still apply viewforum.php?f=57

And we have already started “dabbling” with the video side of it

Hi Steve

We have finally got around to putting together a short video going through some of the very basics with regards to using SimplyPats and downloading from a PAT Tester, in this case a Seaward Apollo 500 / 600.

Its only a short 6 minute video, but it may help.
