We offer seven different levels of training using three separate channels. We invite you, in fact we strongly urge you, to take advantage of the hierarchical training regimen that allows as much learning as you like, at the pace that fits your needs. Want to be up and running in ten minutes? Doable. Want to be a real rocket scientist? Yep. Want to be productively skilled? Piece of cake. Visit Training to learn how.
If you don’t believe in training, have no time to learn the basics, can’t wait for directions, then watch “Creating Your First Intelligent Form,” which is a TLC 1 Basic training video. In 25 minutes it will achieve two goals: get you well-started building working smart forms; and second, we hope, convince you that training isn’t so bad. We can pretty much guarantee the first achievement. The second will be up to you.

Plus they're fun; you'll wonder why everyone isn't using this technology. Give them a try!
You will find the complete online video training course, The Learning Curve, demonstrating everything from basics to rocket science in bite-sized video pieces, especially helpful and worth your time.
