Getting up to Speed with SeedCode
The following notes should help you jump in and be more productive with the calendar...
Use the tabs like “Contacts”, “Projects” etc. at the top of the screen to move to the different sections of the software. If you want to get to a layout in layout mode, run the Show Status Area script from ScriptMaker and then enter layout mode to find the layout you’re interested in.
Here are a few other hints for getting around...
To add your own list of Users to the calendar and switch the color coded types to your own categories, visit the Settings section of the Admin tab.
You’ll find some sample data in the calendar for July of 2003 so you can experiment with the calendar without having to bang in a ton of information. Once you’re ready to get rid of the sample data, read the “Sample Data” section of this documentation for instructions on deleting those sample records.
Most layouts have a “Print” button (or a few of them) along the bottom edge of the screen. Using these buttons will give you better results than just selecting “Print...” from the file menu as in most cases we have special layouts optimized for printing.
SeedCode is designed to be modified, so don’t be shy. If you find something you can’t change it is likely because we’ve locked the layout object to prevent it from being accidentally nudged; highlight the object in layout mode and then select “Unlock” from FileMaker’s Arrange menu.
You can find lots of documentation right here. Click the question mark in the upper right of any screen to arrive at the documentation Topic List (or click the “Topic List” tab on this mini window). You can edit and add to this documentation on the Documentation section of the Admin tab if you’d like to amplify this content for your users.
Finally you can find all sorts of tips, questions and answers on our support forums at http://www.seedcode.com/support
Finally, feel free to call or email with questions. You can find our contact information on the Documentation and Contact Info section of the Admin tab.
