SAGE INSTANT ACCOUNTS - initial reactions

Now that you have installed the software it's time to start using it. Over the next few days please experiment. Explore the software's functions and features, and find out how intuitive it is - do you find your way around fairly easily, or are there things which baffle you?

No real problems, although I would have expected an activation window to appear when installing, rather than having to find it.

Sorry I misunderstood.

I assume we will have an up to date full version following our efforts which, presumably, we'll have to download.

Thanks but I did not mean the data, but the actual software itself.

Do we get a hard copy?

When you select back up it will open a dialogue box and ask where you want to send it.

When you have decided where to send it the default will be data only. If you click the Advanced tab on the dialogue box you can select all you want backed up.

I selected ALL of the choices and did a back up and later, after I had to do a re-install of Sage, I used that back-up to restore everything including passwords etc and it worked a treat.

I think it would be helpful to establish that we have full backup software.

Sage Accounting is essential to my business and I don't want to get any further down the line putting in data, only to have to restore to my older version bacause I don't have a proper version to back up with in an emergency.

I thought the Key we had was for the Full Version, I get a pop up saying I am using a Trial Version...

Does anyone know what form of backup we have for the software?

Good. Its a great program, particularly if you get to use all its potential.

Oh and just to add - for which n/c (nominal codes to use) Choose:

Company
Nominal Ledger
COA (Chart of Accounts)
Double click of Default Chart of Accounts

Clicking on the L/H col will show the group numbers in the R/H col for the correct code in that catagory.

Hope that makes sense and that I have not posted against guidelines for this forum.
