Title: RE: Your Views on the Mapics Manuals?

Personally, I would like to see the old logic manuals return.  They were great tools to use while determining where/when to insert mods etc.  Overall, the manuals themselves aren't designed too bad.  If someone sits down and tries to read them front-to-back they will go insane.  IMO, chapter 2 is a good read because it highlights the features of the module.  This material can be read in its entirety.  The rest of the manual is really best used as a reference tool only.  Accessing them via CD is handy.

Subject: Your Views on the Mapics Manuals?

Hi Mapics ML:

I was at a meeting this morning at work and one of our bookkeepers who runs the A/P Mapics module made the comment, "I don't understand anything when I look in a Mapics manual."

Can you give me your opinion of the Mapics manuals in terms of:

1. How do you rate their general readability and understandability?

2. Do they usually meet your needs when you research a topic in them?

3. How do they compare to manuals of other ERP programs you may seen in your travels?

4. Have the Mapics manuals improved as they evolved thru the enhancements of the program over the years?

5. What other comments would you like to share with the Mapics ML about your experiences using the Mapics manuals?

I hope that many of the Mapics ML members will take the time from their busy schedules to share their experiences on this topic.
