Testing

  • You can download a beta* version from your Client Area
     
  • * If you have never been involved with beta releases before, a beta version is a preview version that is in the final stages of testing before release. Even so, no matter how much we test it, the people who work with a system every day use it in different ways to the way we anticipate, and they may find issues that we haven not thought about, or have good ideas about how we can tweak the final product. Hence the need for 'beta' users, people who are prepared to try out the system and report any issues to us so that we can fix them before the formal release date.
