  • Have Vision 6.1 up and runningUndo stuff that was done in previous sessionOpen new Printing Request document
  • Since joining Deltek and for the last few years at my former company, I have seen how Vision knowledge seems to get forgotten over time – things that we were doing and using when we originally started using Vision have been forgottenIt is not real surprising…I think we only have a certain amount of room in our brains…in our over-stimulated brainsAnd back in November, I did a user group meeting for the UK user group and did a session on tips and tricks and showed some very basic stuff and got quite the responseSince then I have shared these tips in various other settings and also got good responsesSo, I came to the conclusion that there is an appetite out there amongst Vision users for this type of information…so Insight was a great place to share this information – hence the birth of this sessionAnd this is well in line with one constant focuses of mine…that is driving further adoption and accessibility of the Vision product – if I can remind you of tips when using Vision that will hopefully make it more accessible for you
  • Want to cover a wide range – from very simple things to more advanced as wellIf you get bored with some tips, hopefully some others will resonate Some stuff I will demo live, others I will just use powerpoint slides
  • So as I said, reminders of the things you may have forgottenBut, also ideas on things you may not have thought of or ever knownAnd, some new awareness to what might be possibleBottom line is that I hope you leave here with a handful of ideas and tips that make you or someone around you more efficient or more effectiveAnd we are off….
