SnapPlus: Beyond the Basics
This class is designed for SnapPlus users that are familiar with the software. Stephanie will review the newest buttons and demo the tools that are now available to help planners manage many fields and many applications at once. Users will learn how to maximize their efficiency and minimize errors. There will be time for questions. You are welcome to bring a copy of one of your own SnapPlus farms or use the sample we will provide.
