News happens in real time. Here’s how to stay informed without being overwhelmed
Thanks to our enthusiastic customers, now representing more than 40 countries and more than 200 truly fascinating industries, there seems to be something new to share almost weekly. Recently, merely keeping up with it all has been a royal chore, with hundreds of features and functions spread across a handful of products, all matched by “how-to” ideas contributed by thousands of customers.
We pride ourselves on producing the easiest to use and most powerful document assembly and automation software in the world. In recent months we’ve turned a bit of that ingenuity and energy toward providing our users with more of the information they need, faster and easier.
We’re creating specific channels of information to inform users of specific changes, such when we release an update, or create a new subject-specific video, or even a “heads up” on upcoming discussion items for the live weekly The Learning Curve podcast.
The main website (www.theformtool.com) will continue to anchor our efforts, ably supplemented with the online Service Center (service.theformtool.com), the amazing online training course (the video version of The Learning Curve), the Word Warrior monthly newsletter (subscribe here), Twitter (@theformtool) and this blog. We’re going to make each of those channels more specific to your interests.
Here are two very specific action items.
You can now receive real time notifications of posts such as this one, or the recent discussions of how to connect Dox DB to MySQL, the very first announcement of Dox DB 2.0, notice of a fix for a troubling bug, and the story of four early adopters of our software. This blog is now publishing RSS feeds in real time that you can access through your news feed or RSS reader just by selecting www.theformtool.com as a feed. If you don’t already have an RSS reader, we suggest you look at feedly.com. Feedly is free and easy. and a great tool. Open an account and then select www.theformtool.com as one of your interests. Check in with feedly as often as you wish to catch summaries of and links to any new items.
If you’d like to be notified as updates become available for your program, subscribe to the article Current Version Numbers of TheFormTool Products, either with an RSS feed or by registering with the Service Center and requesting email updates (by subscribing) to just this one area. Learn more here.
Either way, you’ll be up to date with the latest news of most importance to you, in real time.
And, you’ll learn what more we have in store as its announced in coming weeks.
